Algonquin College Speaker Series Presents…

Join us on Tuesday, February 12, 2019, at 7 p.m. @ the Waterfront Campus when author and former journalist Whit Fraser, recounts the remarkable events and the extraordinary people who spoke up across Canada’s Northern Territories to challenge the colonial attitudes and policies of the past, bringing lasting change and the prospect of greater justice and equality to come all captured in his book True North Rising.

“This is a huge embrace of a book, irresistible on every level. Whit Fraser brings an uncanny feel for what truly matters to the telling of his own life as it plays into the unfolding saga of the Canadian North.” - Elizabeth Hay-Late Nights on Air–Giller Prize

Whit Fraser, former chairman of the Canadian Polar Commission, former executive director of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, and former CBC journalist.
