HAT Talks: Secularism in Canada

The Humanist Association of Toronto
The Humanist Association of Toronto

Every Saturday we meet to discuss a topic decided upon the previous week. These are topics of humanist interest, from a humanist perspective. The topic of the discussion will be decided in a prior meeting, usually two weeks in advance.

Today’s presentation will be a HAT Talk by Leslie Rosenblood (Centre for Inquiry). There will be a presentation (approx. 30 minutes) followed by Q&A with Leslie and then an open discussion period.

Leslie will discuss secularism in Canada: what it is, what it isn’t, and why it’s the means to maximal freedom for all. He will cover the history of secularism in Canada, compare it with other countries, provide an assessment of where Canada currently adheres to secular principles, and how it can improve in the future.
Meet our diverse group, trade perspectives in a free and open forum and learn from others as they learn from you!

BTW: don’t be concerned if there are not many RSVP’s. Many HAT members attend regularly but don’t sign up on Meetup. Our online meetings have been very popular with 20-30 attendees.
