    We are especially fortunate to have Steve Paikin as our guest speaker. To quote from Steve Paikin's website (, "For Steve Paikin, The Agenda is the latest challenge in an impressive journalism career that has also included newspaper and radio reporting, three books and national praise for the work he did moderating the federal leader's debate during the most recent national election campaign."

    Steve Paikin writes "On The Agenda, we will engage viewers as citizens of this province and country on a range of issues, focusing on who we are and how we live our lives at the dawn of the 21st century. The Agenda will debate the most significant social, political, cultural, and economic ideas of our time. We will not be a newsmagazine show. We will not be looking to answer the question “what,” but rather “why?” So we’ll focus on doing that which you’ve told us over the years we do best: robust, thought provoking debate and discussion."

    His books are:
    Public Triumph, Private Tragedy - The Double Life of John P. Robarts
    The Life - The Seductive Call of Politics
    The Dark Side - The Personal Price of a Political Life

    We are sure this will be a most interesting an entertaining evening and we ask you to attend and encourage any alumni you know to join us. As noted previously, spouses and friends of Trinity are also all very welcome. Please make a commitment to attend and let us know as soon as you can.
