Me talk history

  • Wednesday afternoon, September 27, at Osgoode Hall in downtown Toronto, I'll be part of a Law Society of Upper Canada Canada 150 discussion "highlighting the role of lawyers in making the constitution and in the development of the inclusive society we are committed to building," along with historians and lawyers Eric Adams, Mary Eberts, Hamar Foster, Philip Girard, Constance Backhouse, Laurel Sefton McDowell, Jim Phillips, The Hon Robert Sharpe, and Barrington Walker. Registration details are here. (It's a ticketed event, but no charge, and will also be webcast).

  • Wednesday evening, October 18, (Update: "No, no,no, that's Thursday the 19th."  "Ooops, right. Sheesh. Thanks AW!") with the sponsorship of the North York Historical Society and the Dictionary of Canadian Biography, I will be presenting "William McDougall: Dreams and Disappointments of a Confederation-Era Politician" at the North York Civic Centre, 5100 Yonge Street. This is another no-charge ticketed event, with details and ticketing via Eventbrite.

  • On a yet to be confirmed Thursday in November, I will be presenting this year's W.L. Morton Lecture in Canadian History at Trent University in Peterborough: "A Living Tree: Canada's Constitution at 150". Details to come closer to the date.
I'm also addressing the AGM of the Ontario Genealogical Society later in November, but we'll get to that. I'd be happy to see friends of this blog at all or any of these.
