Thursday, September 29, 202212:00PM - 1:00PMThe Vivian and David Campbell Conference Facility, 1 Devonshire Place, Toronto, ON, M5S 3K7


Dr. Peter Singer is a Special Advisor to the Director General of the World Health Organization, an Officer of the Order of Canada and a bioethicist. In this live podcast taping for the Paul Wells Show, host Paul Wells will ask Dr. Singer about the state of global health in the COVID-19 pandemic.

Is the end of the pandemic in sight? And where does it leave us? Vaccines and other public health measures have become politically polarizing, international cooperation to fight the pandemic took a heavy blow, and the WHO itself has become a target of conspiracy theories. In this climate, Dr. Singer will share his ideas for getting the world back on track to meet its health goals.

The Paul Wells Show is produced by ANTICA, in partnership with the National Arts Centre and the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy. It is published by the Toronto Star and iPolitics. The show’s founding sponsor is TELUS and the title sponsor is Compass Rose

Light refreshments to follow the conversation from 1-2pm.
