Atlas Club members are invited to this exclusive luncheon with Michel Kelly-Gagnon, the president of the Montreal Economic Institute, on hot policy topics in Canada. He will speak about the war on Canadian oil and the role that left-leaning American foundations play in it. He will discuss the Keynesian economic policies of the federal government under their current prime minister, Justin Trudeau. And he will explain why neither right wing nor left wing populism is making headway in Canada, contrary to what is seen in the US and Europe. 

Drinks will be served at noon, and we will sit for lunch at 12:20 p.m.

Many thanks to all of our generous supporters for advancing liberty worldwide! If you're like to join the Atlas Club or renew your membership, please visit
