Tale of Two Cities – Montreal and Toronto

Bi-weekly;  Week One;  Tuesday;  9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Two Terms; Online via Zoom

We are continuing the Tales of two Cities joint ALLTO-MCLL workshop with our Montreal colleagues. At each session of our bi-weekly Zoom workshop, Toronto and Montreal participants take turns in presenting vignettes of life in our two cities. Previously, we looked at happenings and people in both cities from the time of the Ice Ages until Prohibition. Then we investigated the events, developments and personalities of both cities (in parallel) from 1867 until the present.

Next year we propose to explore the past, present and future of Culture, Art, Socio-economics, Thought Leaders, Entertainment, Sports, Neighbourhoods, Tourism, International Relations, Biculturalism and Bilingualism, Rural vs Urban development, Hidden Pearls, Attitudes to the two World Wars, Politics (if you dare), Future Prognostications. We are exploring having a guest joint session with other Lifelong learning groups across Canada.

We look forward to exchanging ideas, thoughts, attitudes with our Lifelong Learning colleagues in la Belle Province.
