CIC Toronto: Rob Goodman: Why American Democracy Is Eroding

October 26, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

TPL and Toronto Metropolitan University presents Associate Professor with TMU’s Department of Politics and Public Administration, Rob Goodman in conversation with Sanjay Ruparelia, at Toronto Reference Library’s Appel Salon space.

What does it mean to live beside an eroding democracy?

A rising authoritarian movement, disenfranchised voters and sabotaged institutions brought America to the brink of a coup. The same forces that have upended democracy in America and around the world are on the move in Canada, too. Can we protect our democracy?

In his new book, Not Here: Why American Democracy is Eroding and How Canada Can Protect ItselfGoodman lays bare the historical roots of today’s politics and making an urgent case for action.

The distinguished political scientist Rob Goodman examines this critical moment in Canadian politics in conversation with Sanjay Ruparelia.

Question and answer session and book signing to follow. Books available for purchase.
