Discuss Book with Naomi Klein

I did get to talk directly in person with Naomi Klein, author of the justly well regarded if not groundbreaking book, ‘The Shock Doctrine, The Rise of Disaster Capitalism‘, as to potentially collaborating on a book. Its early to say much about it, but we agreed to discuss this.

Recent elections gave me many opportunities to meet valued colleagues here in and around Ottawa and Naomi certainly is not among the least of these.

I also got to see her husband with her, Avi Lewis, and this was at the Mayfair Theatre in Ottawa.  More latter.
