Some included films:
- The Game Changers
  (Fri, Apr 27 6:00pm TIFF Bell Lightbox 1, CC, ASL for intro/Q&A | Sat, Apr 28 10:30am Isabel Bader Theatre, CC | Sat, May 5 12:45pm Hot Docs Cinema)
  Quote: "Oscar winner Louis Psihoyos (The Cove) returns with another brilliantly constructed and remarkably persuasive documentary, this time examining how we fuel our bodies. In an uncommon approach, Psihoyos avoids ethical and environmental arguments for adopting a plant-based diet. Instead, Game Changers focuses on an elite cadre of mostly male athletes to explode the myth that animal protein is required for maximum physical strength, performance and, ahem, sexual prowess. Scientists and experts join Olympians, UFC fighters, weightlifters and ultramarathoners whose switch to vegetarian and vegan diets has achieved dramatically positive results. The evidence that the single most important thing each of us can do to save the planet is to stop consuming animals is secondary to this clever appeal to vanity, virility and better health. Chris McDonald"

- Kolyma - Road of Bones
  (Wed May 2 6:30pm TIFF Bell Lightbox | Thu May 3 2:45pm Innis Town Hall | Sat May 5 8:30pm Innis Town Hall)

Online registration at: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/3300058095567592193 (link is external) Quote: "Enthusiasm for free trade is based upon the economic theory of comparative advantage. How well does this theory relate to the modern world? And how does the typical template of a free trade agreement, such as NAFTA, align with sustainability-oriented objectives of conserving resources, reducing pollution, and promoting more public goods? Learn about answers to these questions from an ecological economics perspective. This webinar will introduce a brief written by Eric Miller in support of broader economic literacy on this subject. Eric Miller is a consulting ecological economist and contract faculty at York University. He has experience serving the Ontario and Federal governments as a public servant and has helped hundreds of students through his teaching of undergraduate and graduate students at York University and Queen’s University. Eric earned economic degrees from York University and McMaster and a biology degree from Carleton. This webinar is part of the Economic Literacy Project which is supported by a grant from the Ivey Foundation. This webinar is hosted by the Sustainability Network."

Radio History Philosophy May 8, Tuesday, 9:05pm. 99.1 FM. CBC Radio 1 - Ideas - Red Famine. Quote: "Paul Kennedy in conversation with Anne Applebaum, 2018 winner of the Lionel Gelber Prize. The journalist and academic won for her book, Red Famine. It tells the story of how Stalin's collective farming policies in the early 1930s induced starvation among 3 million Ukrainian peasants. The book argues that this was no byproduct of bad policy decisions, but instead a deliberate act by the Soviets—with repercussions that extend into our own era of Russian-Ukrainian tensions."

It's not a sweeping historical analysis, but a collection of observations and suggestions on what forms resisting authoritarianism can take. Some of them are simple, like reading more, or not repeating popular phrases, or simply believing in the truth. Some are less intuitive, like making more eye contact.

And he believes it's now time to champion Enlightenment values once again: reason, verifiablity, and the ideal of progress itself." Info: http://www.cbc.ca/radio/ideas/features/schedule

But the holiday is called different things in different areas. 1968 - Toronto City Council officially called the civic holiday 'Simcoe Day' after Major-General John Graves Simcoe, who was appointed the first Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada on September 12th, 1791. He convened the first Legislative Assembly and established York (now Toronto) as the capital of the province. One of his crowning achievements was to begin the phasing out of slavery in Upper Canada, which officially ended in 1810 - 23 years before it was abolished in the British Empire and 55 years before the Emancipation Proclamation in the United States."
