In the 60’s, baby boomers changed the world. In their 60s, they just may do it again. The largest and wealthiest generation ever born in Canada is now leading a massive shift in what it means to get old.

A Dreamfilm Production, The Boomer Revolution aired February 2013 on CBC Television’s Doc Zone.
