Bouchard & Taylor drop in 

Magnifying glass

Students in the Religion Department had the opportunity for an informal exchange with philosopher Charles Taylor (at left) and historian Gérard Bouchard. The two visited Ira Robinson’s class since Bouchard and Robinson co-edited a volume in 2001.

The discussion covered a range of issues emerging from some of the points raised during the Bouchard-Taylor Commission’s tour around the various regions of the province to the actual process and structure of the commission’s work.

Although the conversation was unstructured and wide-ranging, Taylor did take the opportunity to jot down notes on the opinions and ideas expressed during the meeting.

The commission will be winding up its research in November.
