This Magazine & rabble.ca co-host a panel discussion on the G8/G20’s agenda on global maternal health. Does Canada have any business leading the charge on these issues? Shouldn’t we look to our own back yard first?

We think this will be a lively and provocative discussion, so for our Toronto-area readers, please come and participate! What we know right now (and we’re super-excited about this lineup) is that Judy Rebick will moderate, and the panel will include Josephine Grey of Low-Income Families Together, and Toronto Star reporter and commentator Antonia Zerbisias.

We'll add additional details as we have them. Hope to see you there!

(Oh, and if you're not in Toronto, you don't have to miss out — we'll be live streaming the talk online for free!)

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
