Onstage Conversation
Carol Off
Ahmad Danny Ramadan
Doug Saunders
Moderator Eric Friesen

Join moderator Eric Friesen for a penetrating conversation with award-winning journalists and authors Carol Off and Doug Saunders, and debut novelist Danny Ramadan about nations at war, the refugee experience of danger, displacement, disintegration, and intolerance, and the experience of those who try to help; and more broadly about Canada’s track record of assistance and welcome, particularly in comparison with the US, Britain, and EU countries. Can we, and should we, do more to help? Guests of honour: Jamal Saeed, Rufaida Alkhabaz, and Ray Argyle.
