World Affairs Forum (7:00 pm - 8:30 pm)

We live in interesting times. Your opinion matters.

Will the UK finally pull the Brexit emergency brake, or will they go off the cliff clutching Boris Johnson's imaginary parachute? Will the US and China drift into a Trade War . . . and how will Canada be affected? How will Trump respond when he discovers that the rest of the world continues to commercially engage with Iran? How much longer can Venezuela hold on . . . weeks, days? North Korea promised to do what? The US mid-term elections are drawing near, and Trump is besieged by a torrent of law suits. Refugees, Mueller's investigation, Chinese financial distress, and will Michael Cohen flip? BTW: What's the latest on the Kinder-Ottawa pipeline?

An Evening With Local Author Linden Carroll (7:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

Come join us for an evening with local author Linden Carroll as we discuss her book: Olive.

Ostracized at birth by her family, Olive’s life is that of an opportunist and black marketer. She uses sex, guile and music to move up, but everything has a price, and her children must bear the cost. Olive epitomizes the spirit and soul of the British people through two world wars; though impoverished, they still retained their strength, comradery and dignity while bearing the burden of the atrocities inflicted upon them.

Linden Carroll was born in England, and currently resides in British Columbia. She spends part of the year in the Cascade Mountain area of Northern Washington and enjoys long walks with her dog.

Registration required. Register online or at 604-984-0286, ext. 8144.
