About this Event

Join us for In Defence of Democracy, a stimulating and wide-ranging discussion with Anand Giridharadas, bestselling author of Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World.

Known for his unapologetic and provocative critique of the global elite’s efforts to “change the world,” Giridharadas makes the case that decisions for the public good should be in the public’s hands. This fireside chat will tackle pressing questions on power and the future of democracy. Giridharadas will be interviewed on-stage by Nahlah Ayed, host of CBC's Ideas.

The fireside chat concludes at 8:30 pm and will be followed by a reception hosted by the Samara Centre for Democracy. The reception concludes at 10:00 pm.
