The consumer movement in Canada / Jonah Goldstein, University of Waterloo.: RG31-9/1977E-PDF

"The weakness of the individual consumer might be-compensated for by the creation of a strong consumer movement which could achieve collectively what the individual consumer cannot attain by himself. One model of such a movement the attempt to represent all consumers by a large non-partisan organization claiming to defend a generalized consumer interest, and acting in the name of all consumers while in no way challenging the pre-existent concentrations of power in its society - a consumer organization which would work together with corporations, government and other sectors for the benefit of all consumers"--page 1.
