The Good Fight tells the story of Marcel Cadieux, arguably the most important francophone diplomat and civil servant in Canadian history.

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.
