    Philosophers' Café | Capitalism and the Environment
    Both author-activist Naomi Klein and Pope Francis (in his recent encyclical) blame capitalism for our environmental crisis, implicitly suggesting that the economic model that has brought such an increase in wealth and well-being to the world is now outdated. Since at least Marx, capitalism has been blamed for many human evils, but viable alternatives have proven elusive.

    Philosophers' Café | What Does It Mean to Be Italian in Canada?
    There is both tradition and novelty connected to being Italian in Canada. Join us for a discussion of questions such as who is an Italian-Canadian? Do new immigrants relate to the old or new stereotypes? What does it mean to be Italian?

    Philosophers' Café | First Nations in Canada: What Role for Allies?
    In recent years, there has been considerable focus on promoting access to clean water, health care and other basic services in the developing world. But have we done enough to improve access to those services in our own country? First Nations in Canada have been largely segregated and ignored for years. In the wake of the recent final report from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, do you see a role for non-Aboriginal Canadians in advocating for First Nations to have access to the same type and level of services that other Canadians have?
