Biographical history

Giles Endicott, a trade unionist and a member of the Canadian Food and Allied Workers Union at the time, played a significant leadership role in the early days of the Ontario wing of the Waffle party. He was one of four individuals responsible for attending New Democratic Party constituency meetings to encourage them to endorse what become known as the Waffle Manifesto that was to be brought forward at the NDP convention in Winnipeg in October 1969. Endicott became disillusioned with the Waffle on the arrival of Western radicals into the movement.
