Join the Calgary Journal Thursday, Sept. 21, on Facebook Live for a conversation with Doug Saunders about his latest book, Maximum Canada: Why 35 Million Canadians Aren’t Enough.
In the book, Saunders discusses his vision of how tripling the country’s population would be the best way for Canada to reconcile with Indigenous and regional divides, build equality and ensure economic and ecological sustainability.
Saunders is an international-affairs columnist for The Globe and Mail. He has served as the paper’s London-based European bureau chief, run the paper’s Los Angeles bureau, and has written from East Asia, the Indian Subcontinent, the Middle East and North Africa. Saunders is also the author of two other books, Arrival City: The Final Migration and Our Next World and The Myth of the Muslim Tide.
In his career, Saunders has won the National Newspaper Award five times, the Schelling Prize for Architectural Theory, the Donner Prize and the National Library of China Wenjin Book Award.
Viewers can submit questions by commenting on the Facebook Live stream that will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Thursday on the Calgary Journal’s Facebook page.
