Ukraine topic of two Politics in the Pub events

Hosted by Prince George branch of Canadian International Council

The Prince George branch of the Canadian International Council have lined up speakers for two Politics in the Pub events.

The war in Ukraine will be the topic on both occasions and they mark a return to in-person events after the pandemic forced most of the presentations over the past few years to be delivered remotely.

On Thurs., Sept. 22, Matias Margulis, an assistant professor in the School of Public Policy and Global Affairs and Faculty of Land and Food Systems at the University of British Columbia, will talk about how the conflict has impacted food prices and supply and examine recent efforts by the United Nations to prevent world hunger from worsening.

It's set for the Twisted Cork, 1157 Fifth Ave., 5:30 p.m. start. 

On Thurs., Oct. 6, historian Chris Kilford will speak about what the war will mean for Canada. Kilford recently visited Canadian troops deployed in Latvia and traveled to Anakara, Turkiye to hear the Turkish perspective on current events.

It's set for the Black Clover (upstairs) 1165 Fifth Ave., also a 5:30 p.m. start.
