Ian Plimer is flying all the way from Australia to speak. If you haven’t heard him speak, look for some of his videos on Youtube. Dayna Martin is flying in from the east coast and so is Jan Narveson. Rakesh Wadhwa, who in my view seeded the modern liberty movement in India, is flying in from Dubai. Rick Rule, Doug Casey, Adrian Day, etc. are speaking. There are a total of 13 speakers.
If you haven’t yet registered, do consider it. You don’t want to miss this event. Cost: CAD140 (~US$105). There is also a discounted price for those under 25 years.
This link takes you to the program and at the bottom of it is the registration button. Please register before all seats are gone.
