Canada’s Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, Catherine McKenna has been called to an urgent Treasury Board meeting and has had to postpone her interview for our Conversation Series this Thursday.

Our Zoom series continues with prominent media commentator Sandy Garossino this Thursday, May 28th at 5pm PT / 8pm ET.

Garossino will join host Linda Solomon Wood to discuss hot topics including the international headline, the Meng Wanzhou decision, coming out of Vancouver Wednesday, whatever happened to former Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, and other issues she has covered for the National Observer.

Since 2015, Garossino has been at the core of National Observer’s editorial voice. Her op-eds don’t shy away from controversy. Her investigations uncover tough truths. And her articles on National Observer’s website have been read by millions.

Garossino described former Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper as “reduced to fabricating bitter recriminations against the media on a second-rate YouTube channel,” in her most recent commentary for the National Observer. And she described the Omar Khadr case as a ‘Canadian tragedy and failure of moral courage’. She's investigated Kenney’s War Room. And she's covered the Liberal’s climate plans.

Sandy will take participant questions during the Zoom event.

Join us this Thursday May 28th, 5pm PT / 8pm ET as National Affairs Columnist, Sandy Garossino speaks with host and Editor-in-Chief Linda Solomon Wood. Register here.
