Fall Forum Season: That's a Wrap Folks!

The 2017 Fall Forum season culminated with a final event this past Friday, December 1st at the Gulf Islands Secondary School with guest speaker Michael Doyle, who joined us to discuss world issues. Doyle was former United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan's most important advisor from 2001 to 2003, holding the title of Assistant Secretary-General. 

Audience members asked Doyle many questions ranging from the role of the United Nations in global governance to Russia's role in influencing elections in various countries such as the United States. The discussion – moderated by Forum board chair Michael Byers - was thought-provoking and shed light on many of the major issues facing the world today. 

The Forum will be back in the new year with a stellar lineup of 2018 guests, so stay tuned!
