Dear Friends of Wednesday Salon West (WSW),

Thank you all for your continuous participation (in person and on-line), for your wonderful insights & ideas and for your most excellent tributes to the cult of Bacchus. Hopefully over the summer you have all recharged your batteries and are ready for the restart! Yes, we are calling us back to order for the September edition of the WSW, with the launch of the 2.0 version.

Why WSW 2.0? In response to trends in your comments, we are introducing:

  • WSW grouping on LinkedIn – so you can post links/comments to share with the group as well as be able to obtain each other’s e-mails (without going through the chair!)
  • While keeping some diversity to the conversation linked to current events and other ideas, there will now be one major topic per session – that we will be exploring in more detail over about an hour. It will require that you read at the very least the few factoids shared below and ideally, at least some of the background links shared.

So in addition to the recent interesting events in politics in BC, federally and municipally, the major topic for September is “US vs.  Canada: Busting the myths” – how are we the same, how are we different and where are we heading on our collective boat i.e our continent? And for those of you who need to, yes, podemos hablar de Mexico tambien. A few leads:

As always bring your questions, comments, ideas and musings for the mutual enjoyment and knowledge advancement of the gathering. And come and enjoy!
