On Citizenship… The 2014 Massey Lecture

As headlined in The Toronto Star… in this year’s Massey Lectures, “(f)ormer GG Adrienne Clarkson explores the meaning of Canadian citizenship.  In her new book, Belonging, Adrienne Clarkson contemplates what it means to be a citizen of Canada.”

Having been there last Tuesday night for the Toronto lecture I must say I think it is the best Massey Lecture I’ve ever been to (and I am a regular attendee!).

Read the (condensed) interview in The Toronto Star…  and drop by the Library to check out the book.
