Dr. Paul Kershaw is a farmer morning and night. By day, he is an academic, public speaker, volunteer and media contributor. Kershaw is one of Canada’s leading thinkers about family policy, showing its important contributions to crime prevention, going green, population health, school achievement, Truth & Reconciliation, gender equality and business profitability. His contributions to public dialogue are innovative, provocative and fervently committed to the evidence, making Kershaw difficult to categorize. While the Tyee implies Kershaw is part of a right wing conspiracy, public investment skeptics suggest Kershaw is socialist. CKNW radio jokingly calls him the “Boomer Hater,” while Canadian Family magazine describes him as “the ‘Generation Squeeze’ guru.” Twice the Canadian Political Science Association has awarded Kershaw national prizes for his policy research and feminist theory. “Armed with a laptop and a raft of statistics,” The Vancouver Province describes Kershaw as “a one-man road show trying to change Canada one talk at a time.” Change is necessary, he urges, because Canada no longer works for all generations. At the University of British Columbia, Kershaw is on Faculty with the School of Population and Public Health and the Human Early Learning Partnership (HELP), where he is a Mowafaghian Foundation Scholar.
