Description:
Neil Young (born August 28, 1936) is a former Canadian politician. He emigrated to Canada in the 1950s and worked as a machinist in the electrical industry. He later became an organizer for the United Electrical Workers Union.

He ran unsuccessfully for Toronto City Council's Ward 9 in 1976. In a closely contested nomination race, he won the New Democratic Party nomination for the Beaches federal electoral district by one vote in 1978. In the federal election of 1979 he lost narrowly to Progressive Conservative candidate Robin Richardson in an election that resulted in Joe Clark's Progressive Conservatives winning a narrow minority government.

After the fall of Joe Clark's government in December, 1979, Young was elected MP in the general election of February, 1980.

He represented the electoral districts of Beaches from 1980 to 1988, and Beaches—Woodbine from 1988 to 1993, in the Canadian House of Commons as a member of the New Democratic Party (NDP).

Young served as the NDP's critic on pensions and veteran's affairs.

He was defeated in the 1993 election by Liberal Party of Canada candidate Maria Minna.
