About this event

Since February of this year, the invasion of Ukraine has witnessed horrific scenes from the front lines and an influx of Ukrainians fleeing to Eastern Europe and beyond. Indeed, the war has been a disaster for the people of Ukraine but increasingly so for Russia, diminishing the country's global standing to a point seemingly beyond recovery. Meanwhile, Europe braces for what could be a very cold winter. As the fighting continues, the question now is how will this war continue to unfold and how might it eventually end? Closer to home, Canadians are also asking what could happen to Canada's security, economy and geopolitical position? Join our speaker, Dr. Chris Kilford, who recently visited Canadian troops deployed with NATO in Latvia, and travelled to Ankara, Türkiye to hear the Turkish perspective on current events.
