Walls, Bridges, Homes: 6 Degrees essay series

Walls, Bridges, Homes is an essay series in the Globe and Mail that explored the themes for 6 Degrees Citizen Space 2017 in response to an emerging global appetite for a progressive narrative around inclusion and immigration rooted in the Canadian experience. Institute for Canadian Citizenship co-chairs Adrienne Clarkson and John Ralston Saul, CEO Charlie Foran, and 6 Degrees speakers Niigaan Sinclair, Reni Eddo-Lodge and Emilie Nicolas contributed to the series. The result, we hope, is a further step in the formation of new language and thinking.
