Current Events Discussion
Now Online or Outdoors During Summer

Current Events is now full. Please contact the Facilitator to register to the Wait List if interested.

Participants discuss national, local and international** current events.  We aim to provide a place where people can explore ideas and express points of view in an educated and non-confrontational way.

The format of the meetings can be either:

a one hour detailed exploration of a topic, led by a group member or members, with the second hour a facilitator-led discussion on various current topics, or

a two hour “bring your own topic” session where various members give introductions on very current topics and then lead short discussions of them.

    Subject matter is wide ranging. In 2021 we have discussed Hydrogen as a Fuel, Vaccines and Vaccinations, and Alberta’s and Quebec’s concerns about Canadian Federation. The sessions are fun, and a great opportunity for some intellectual stimulation, together with socializing with interesting people from a variety of backgrounds.
