Polar matters being discussed at SEJ pub night

The Society for Environmental Journalists is having one of its periodic pub nights next Tuesday December 7 in Toronto, with a guest presentation by Sheilagh Grant, author of Polar Imperative. The event is at 7 p.m. at the Harbord House Pub (upstairs) at 150 Harbord Street. The notice from Craig Saunders about the event explains
As climate change opens up the Northwest Passage and makes mineral and oil extraction a more viable option, the question of Arctic sovereignty is going to become more contentious. Prof. Grant's book is a delightfully accessible and detailed history of North American Arctic sovereignty issues, and will provide an excellent backbone for discussion and debate.
RSVP is requested to SEJpubnight[at]saunderseditor[dot]com or on Facebook

Thanks for giving people the heads-up on the pub night, D.B. I'm thrilled to see that Shelagh's book is up for the Shaughnessy Cohen prize (alongside Arrival City!).

The next pub night is Tuesday, Feb. 1, again at Harbord House. All journalists are welcome. Our guest will be McMaster University geographer John Eyles.
