2008 Scheduled Events

May 16 - (Victoria Day Weekend) - Toronto, ON - This year, the Toronto Chapter of Citizens for a Canadian Republic marks the May Two-Four Weekend with a special speaking engagement featuring the legendary Canadian journalist Allan Fotheringham.

Fotheringham is well-known for his 27 years as Maclean's Magazine back-page columnist, 10 years as a regular panelist on the CBC Television program Front Page Challenge, and lately, his column in the Globe and Mail newspaper. However, if that's not enough, he's also a long-time, outspoken republican who's eager to help the cause by participating in this evening of wit and enlightenment.

The 2 hour event, beginning at 7 pm, will be highlighted by Mr. Fotheringham's account of his years as a correspondent in Britain covering, among other things, their Royal family. Of course, he'll also be offering his views on the British monarchy and why it's time for Canada to grow up and cut the apron strings from the institution.

Date and Time: Friday, May 16. 7-9:30 pm.

Admission: Free (donations accepted).

Location: The historic 1848 Enoch Turner Schoolhouse, 106 Trinity Street, Toronto, King and Parliament Distillery District (Trinity Streetcar stop)
