Many agree: the time for talk was yesterday, and the time to act is now. With the Indigenous community more awake than ever, the choice Canadians must make to help out or get out of the way is clear. Check out this book THE COMEBACK that discusses the upswing we are seeing amongst Aboriginal youth especially and whether Canadians can do anything to support or stop it. The formal description of the event (it’s $15 to get in) and link and poster are below!
Join John Ralston Saul as he considers the story of Canada’s past so that we may better understand its present – and imagine a better future. Historic moments are always uncomfortable, Saul writes in his impassioned new book, The Comeback (Penguin Random House), calling on all of us to embrace and support the comeback of Aboriginal peoples. Join John Ralston Saul and his special guests: writers, thinkers and community representatives Leah Gazan and Niigaanwewidam James Sinclair, for an evening of public conversation as they discuss the necessity of rebuilding relationships central to the creation of Canada. Relationships vital to this country’s continued existence. John Ralston Saul is Canada’s leading public intellectual. Declared a “prophet” by Time magazine and included in the prestigious Utne Reader’s list of the world’s 100 leading thinkers and visionaries.
This event will feature a musical performance from Rebecca Chartrand and is hosted by Michael Champagne.
