Greenwald events in Canada

Glenn Greenwald, one of the original journalists who received the Snowden leaks, will be speaking at three events in Canada during the coming week.

The first event is Glenn Greenwald in conversation with David Walmsley, which will take place at CBC's Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto on October 21st. Walmsley is the editor-in-chief of the Globe and Mail, and his paper published a teaser interview with Greenwald on Sunday: Colin Freeze, "Q&A with Glenn Greenwald: ‘There are so many stories left to be reported’," Globe and Mail, 19 October 2014.

[Update 21 October 2014: A pleasant discussion between Walmsley and Greenwald. Some inspiring words for Canadian journalists. A couple of well-deserved shout-outs for Duncan Campbell and Nicky Hager. No news.]

Next will come the 2014 Beaverbrook Annual Lecture at Pollack Hall, McGill University, Montréal on October 23rd. McGill plans to livestream the lecture. [Update 25 October 2014: Link here.]

The final event, Glenn Greenwald Speaks, will take place in Ottawa at 440 Albert Street on October 25th. The event will feature both a talk by Greenwald and a subsequent discussion between Greenwald and Jesse Brown, host of the CANADALAND podcast. More information here.

[Update 25 October 2014: The Ottawa event can be watched here. Prodded by Jesse Brown, Greenwald again promised that more CSEC revelations will eventually come out, but, perhaps unsurprisingly, he provided no details.]

All three events are open to the public, but tickets are required for the Ottawa and Toronto events. See the links for details.
