Three of Canada’s leading experts on Cuba since the Revolution will be joining us for the CIC Halifax Annual Reception and Dinner. Journalsts Keith Bolender and Stephen Kimber and Professor John Kirk will all be attending our Annual Reception and Dinner before the Panel Presentation next Thursday night at Dalhousie University.   

What we have planned is a warm-up for the Evening Panel, featuring acclaimed journalists Keith Bolender and Stephen Kimber and being held a few steps away in the Dalhousie SUB Building at 7 pm.  

Our Annual Dinner will be free for “official” CIC Halifax Members and available at cost ($20.00 per person) to all Non-Member friends of the Branch. Our cash bar will open at 5:15 pm and the dinner begins at 5:30 pm.  The Annual Election of Officers will be held with Dinner in progress and will end with a Roundtable Discussion of “Cuba Under Seige.”  

Following the Dinner, everyone is encouraged to walk over to the Panel Discussion, organized by Professor John Kirk in co-operation with three different international community organizations. 

It looks as if “CUBA NIGHT” in Halifax is going to be a real feast for true internationalists.

Before you click away, we’d like to ask you for a favour … 


Journalism in Canada has suffered a devastating decline over the last two decades. Dozens of newspapers and outlets have shuttered. Remaining newsrooms are smaller. Nowhere is this erosion more acute than in the coverage of foreign policy and international news. It’s expensive, and Canadians, oceans away from most international upheavals, pay the outside world comparatively little attention.

At Open Canada, we believe this must change. If anything, the pandemic has taught us we can’t afford to ignore the changing world. What’s more, we believe, most Canadians don’t want to. Many of us, after all, come from somewhere else and have connections that reach around the world.

Our mission is to build a conversation that involves everyone — not just politicians, academics and policy makers. We need your help to do so. Your support helps us find stories and pay writers to tell them. It helps us grow that conversation. It helps us encourage more Canadians to play an active role in shaping our country’s place in the world.
