Night One:
Doug Saunders discusses Maximum Canada. During most years before 1967, a greater number of people fled Canada than immigrated to it. Canada’s growth has left us underpopulated. Our small population continues to hamper our competitive clout, our ability to act independently in an increasingly unstable world, and our capacity to build the resources we need to make our future viable. To avoid global obscurity and create lasting prosperity, to build equality and reconciliation of indigenous and regional divides, and to ensure economic and ecological sustainability, Canada needs to triple its population.

Night two:
David Bezmozgis discusses Immigrant City. In these deeply felt, slyly humorous stories, Bezmozgis pleads no special causes but presents immigrant characters with all their contradictions and complexities, their earnest and divided hearts. Immigrant City was a Giller Prize Finalist, a Globe & Mail Best Book of the Year, and a CBC Best Book of the Year.

Night three:
Elizabeth Renzetti discusses Shrewed. By turns laugh-out-loud funny for the truths that she tells and heartbreaking for the injustices she exposes, bestselling author and acclaimed journalist Elizabeth Renzetti Shrewed lays bare the personal and the political in the lives of girls and women.
