The Walrus Talks Conversations About Canada : We Desire a Better Country

The Walrus Foundation, in partnership with the Order of Canada and Canada 150, host a national tour focusing on the future of the country. The tour visits each province and territory over a three-month period, and features 50 Order of Canada recipients and 50 youth leaders.

The tour stops at the Confederation Centre of the Arts in Charlottetown, PEI. Often referred to as the birthplace of Confederation, PEI hosted the historic meeting in 1864, which led to the founding of Canada. This event features the following Walrus Talkers: Chris Zhou (member of the Prime Minister’s Youth Council), Samantha Nutt (author and founder of War Child Canada), Clifton van der Linden (founder and CEO of Vox Pop Labs), David Helwig (writer), Teyotsihstokwáthe Dakota Brant (international speaker, artist, and entrepreneur), Jeff Liebert (agro-ecology Ph.D. student), Graham Greene (actor), and Charlotte Gray (author).

Hear from extraordinary Canadians as they talk about the country and share their visions for the future.
