Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges joins us for an evening in Toronto to speak about “The Great Unraveling.”

Hedgesâ€™ message is clear: popular uprisings in the United States and around the world are inevitable in the face of mounting environmental destruction and grotesque wealth polarization.
