The Big Idea: Is Democracy Doomed? *SOLD OUT*

September 28, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

***SOLD OUT***

In this election year, the Big Idea focuses on a question that is on everyone’s mind: what is the future of Canadian democracy? Can cherished institutions endure ongoing assault from populism, climate change, social media, geopolitical turbulence, and accelerating social upheaval? Are our governments up to it? Join Indigenous poet and thought leader Lee Maracle, political journalist Robert Lewis, and community organizer and activist Dave Meslin in a critical and timely discussion with Kingston WritersFest’s veteran moderator, Carol Off.

Media sponsor: The Walrus

6:00 – 8:00 pm
