Diaspora Dialogues and Literary Review of Canada in partnership with Toronto Public Library bring you a provocative event, Steal This Idea!
The event showcases a panel discussion with a few of Toronto’s key prominent figures. Panelists will present three bold ideas for civic change from other cities that could work well here in Toronto – each one a “world-class” idea worth stealing related to social justice, sustainability or culture.
Panelists include radio host and filmmaker Sook-Yin Lee; Dr. Rick Smith, author and Executive Director of Environmental Defence; and MP Olivia Chow. Royson James, Urban Affairs Columnist for the Toronto Star, will moderate the event; and President of Ryerson University, Sheldon Levy, will play the role of provocateur.
Sook-Yin Lee is a radio host and filmmaker.
Dr. Rick Smith, author and Executive Director of Environmental Defence
