The Ramsey Talks in Toronto

Edward Snowden's leaks about U.S. surveillance clarified one thing: there is no privacy in the digital age. Our right to privacy is no longer a given, but a negotiation.

The issues here are huge, gnarly and deeply frightening. So I've asked Geoffrey Stone to unpack them for us at the Ramsay Luncheon on Wednesday, November 19th.
