13th James S. Palmer Lecture Series featuring David Frum
13th James S. Palmer Lecture Series Presents:
The Fate of Democratic Institutions in the Western World
Are democratic institutions under threat abroad and even in Canada? Real world events like Brexit and the election of Donald Trump evidence what pollsters have been warning of for years – that citizens are losing faith not just in politicians, but the institutions of government themselves. Please join internationally respected expert and author David Frum as he explores the forces at work – from declining trust, to diminished support for free speech and democracy itself – and charts potential paths forward
