Please join us for a very important panel discussion on 9/11 and where we stand in the war on terror. What enemies do we face; are we prepared for the next stage of the fight; will Israel survive; and what leadership is required to ensure western civilization comes out on top? These and many other questions will be asked, and hopefully answered. Our panel will consist of:

  • Bret Stephens, the deputy editorial page editor responsible for the international opinion pages of The Wall Street Journal. He also writes "Global View," the paper’s weekly foreign-affairs column, and is a member of the Journal’s editorial board. He is a regular panelist on The Journal Editorial Report, a weekly political talk show broadcast on Fox News. He was also editor-in-chief of the Jerusalem Post from 2002 to 2004.

  • Brian Lee Crowley, Managing Director of the Macdonald-Laurier Institute, Canada's only truly national public policy think tank based in Ottawa. The MLI proposes thoughtful alternatives to Canadians and their political and opinion leaders through non-partisan and independent research and commentary.

  • Salim Mansur, Professor of Political Science at the University of Western Ontario and is a graduate from University of Toronto. His last book, Delectable Lie: A Liberal Repudiation of Multiculturalism, won the 2014 Eric Hoffer Award for the most thought-provoking book.
After the panel discussion, there will be a Q&A and a reception.
