TorDan Talks #3 featuring Michael MacMillan, co-founder of the Samara Foundation

Please join us for TorDan Talks #3 featuring Michael MacMillan, co-founder of Samara, a non-partisan charity aimed at increasing public participation in politics in Canada.  He will share with us insights from Samara’s exit interviews of 80 former federal MPs and the resulting book “Tragedy in the Commons” written by Michael MacMillan and Samara Executive Director Alison Loat.  Expect a lively discussion about how we can improve how democracy works in Canada.  Stay after the talk to chat, network and perhaps have a beer or two.

Tragedy in the Commons is a thoughtful analysis of what is broken in our democracy and a must-read for anyone concerned about Canada’s politics.”
