The Good Fight tells the story of Marcel Cadieux, arguably the most important francophone diplomat and civil servant in Canadian history. His story provides “a unique window to domestic and foreign events and personalities whose legacies are still being debated”. Dr. Kelly will begin the conversation with a presentation on his book, followed by time for questions and discussion with the audience. Dr. Christopher Adams, Chair of the J.W. Dafoe Foundation Board, will moderate the discussion.

Dr. Brendan Kelly has taught courses in History and International Relations at the University of Toronto. He is a continuing Fellow at the U of T’s Bill Graham Centre for Contemporary International History and serves as the Book Review Editor of International Journal. He recently accepted a position with the federal government in Ottawa as Head of Historical Section and Deputy Director of the Foreign Policy Research and Foresight Division at Global Affairs Canada.
