Upcoming Meetings

Upcoming Activities


On March 29, Professor Greg Steinberg is our guest speaker.  He is the Canada Research Chair in Metabolism, Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes, with the research centre at McMaster University.

Greg is also the son of one of our members, a very proud Bob Steinberg!

Diabetes contributes to 40% of heart attacks and 30% of strokes in Canada. Greg is working to prevent sudden heart complications in people with diabetes.

Dr. Steinberg and his team develop new tests to help predict which people are at highest risk. With a new therapy that prevents inflammation and lowers blood glucose, these findings could reduce heart attacks and strokes and save lives.

PERSONAL VIGNETTE: Also in this meeting, Doug Craig will be delivering his personal vignette.

LUNCH BUNCH: After the meeting, all members are invited to have lunch (at their own cost) at a local restaurant. A great way to get to know your fellow members.


On February 22, Dr. Christopher DiCarlo spoke to us on Zoom. He is a philosopher, educator, and author. He often teaches in the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Toronto (in Scarborough) and the Life Institute at Ryerson University in Toronto.

He is also a lifetime member of Humanist Canada and an Expert Advisor for the Centre for Inquiry Canada.

He has been invited to speak at numerous national and international conferences and written many scholarly papers ranging from bioethics to cognitive evolution.

His book entitled: How to Become a Really Good Pain in the Ass: A Critical Thinker’s Guide to Asking the Right Questions is currently in its fifth printing and is a best-seller in Canada and the U.S.

His latest book: So You Think You Can Think? Tools for Having Intelligent Conversations and Getting Along was released in May, 2020
