Living with Uncertainty: the Road to Peace
Canadian School of Peacebuilding presents a public lecture with John Ralston Saul
Book signing to follow the lecture.

Canada is more isolated from its allies because the United States and European countries are shaping themselves towards internal divisions and external fear. In many ways, this crisis is about an immigration continent which cannot admit that reality, and has no immigration policy. Only by embracing concepts of uncertainty can they find ways to live together, both within their countries and with their neighbours.

John Ralson Saul is an award winning essayist and novelist. Declared a "prophet" by TIME magazine, he is included in the prestigious Utne Reader's list of the world's 100 leading thinkers and visionaries.
