World Affairs Forum

We live in interesting times. Join us for a lively and free-ranging discussion of current world affairs with facilitator Michael Wood. 

Here's what we're chatting about next:

March 7: Social Media—Great for connecting with friends, but could it be toxic in politics? Facebook says it provides the connecting wire and has no responsibility for what people say, like telecomm companies. Do you feel the same? 
March 21: Pipeline —Some say the cheapest way to move Alberta's oil & natural gas to Pacific ports for is by pipeline. One side says "Let's do it!"; the other asks "Are you crazy?". Is there a middle ground?  
April 4: Middle East —Is OPEC iimportant? Has Qatar has been ostracized? Do Syria & Turkey have daggers drawn? What about Saudi Arabian diplomacy? We're discussing the Middle East.
April 18: Brexit —March 29th is/was “Drop-Dead-Day” for the UK. Retract Article 50? Ask for extension? Another referendum? OMG! What will they do?
May 2: U.S. Politics: —Prosecutors (Special, Federal, State & Congressional) are concluding investigations on Trump. Will “The Donald” need a bigger boat? 
May 16: Cyber Warfare —The perfect crime: low cost, maximum damage, and plausible deniability. Welcome to asymmetrical warfare in the 21st century. Does online banking have you spooked?
