Lecture: Former Govenor General Adrienne Clarkson

As part of CBC Massey Lecture series Canada’s former Governor will speak at the Broadway theatre on Oct. 20 at 7:30. The title is The Cosmopolitan Ethic.

The injunction to help others as part of one’s duty to one’s country integrates a sense of place with a sense of self. We have interpreted citizenship as a consensual contract with certain emotive elements, such as a high regard for our natural surroundings, some respect for the institutions of government and the law, and, ideally, a commitment to helping advance the aims of our society in whatever way we are called upon to do so. Citizenship is linked on one hand to the rights of the individual, and on the other to membership and attachment to a community.”

Adrienne Clarkson
