US Senator and 2016 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders will speak about health care on October 29 at Convocation Hall in an event titled “What the U.S. Can Learn From Canadian Health Care.”

Sanders, of Vermont, is a leading American democratic socialist who inspired a grassroots movement when he unsuccessfully challenged Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party’s nomination for the 2016 Presidential race.

The talk, which will also include Dr. Danielle Martin of Women’s College Hospital and U of T, will centre on what the US can learn from the Canadian single-payer health care system.

The event, scheduled for 11 am, is free, but registrants are limited to two tickets per order. Registration begins on October 20 at 10 am but does not guarantee admittance.
