The question on the floor: Will a populist, anti-immigration agenda come to Ottawa in 2019? Probably yes? or, Probably no? As we’ve seen populist sentiment sweep across the United States and Europe, we wonder: will Canada be different?

Once again, we have assembled an incredible ‘brain trust’ of scholars and thinkers, who will lead us through a nuanced discussion of the possibilities, probabilities, and potentialities of Canada’s future.
