Events the Week of May 5


Dear Members of the Massey Community, Chers collègues,

I hope that you are all keeping healthy and safe.

I would like to take this opportunity to offer Senior Fellow Tiff Macklem our congratulations and best wishes as he becomes the Governor of the Bank of Canada. We need his great talent to help all of us through this crisis! Congratulations, Tiff!


We have another full week ahead for our Massey Dialogues series:

Tuesday, May 5 at 4pm – Dr. Sacha Bhatia, Chief Medical Innovation Officer of Women’s College Hospital and cardiologist at UHN, will speak to Virtual Care in a Post-COVID World. He and I will be joined by Senior Fellow, and UofT’s former Dean of Medicine, Dr. Catharine Whiteside and Junior Fellow and medical student Krish Bilimoria. We will discuss the use of big data for medical uses, a counterpoint to our discussion on privacy last week. Watch the livestream here.


Wednesday, May 6 at 12pm – We will hear from Corporate Governance specialist Ed Waitzer in We Have Met the Enemy and He is Us – What We Might Learn From This Crisis?

Finally, Thursday, May 7 at 5pm – Tune in to hear the outgoing and incoming Visiting Fellows on Foreign and Defence Policy, Margaret Biggs and Rosemary McCarney. They will be joined in conversation by Junior Fellow and student at both the Munk and Rotman Schools Anowa Quarcoo to discuss The COVID19 Pandemic: Implications for Foreign and Defence Policy.

Lastly, do not forget! Friday, May 8 at 4 pm The Chapel Royal Symposium Presents: music & miskâsowin with Moe Clark will take place online. The performance will be broadcast here and is open to all.


Stay safe,
