RSVP at MeetUp.com.  The description from that site:

Our speaker for this meetup will be Jim Harris, Canadian author, environmentalist, and national leader of the Green Party (2003 to 2006).

Jim Harris has written six books, two of which have been national best-sellers in Canada. He also delivers speeches on change and leadership in the corporate sector, and Association Magazine has ranked him as one of Canada’s top speakers.

His second book, The Learning Paradox, was nominated for the National Business Book Award in Canada and appeared on several bestseller lists. In this work, Harris argues that Canadians should embrace new learning to gain usable skills for a business community grounded in rapid technological change. A more recent book, Blindsided! A Crisis is a Terrible Thing to Waste has been published in over 80 countries.

The meetup will begin with the business of Post Carbon Toronto, (executive positions, budget, etc and we will be asking the members to contribute their thoughts to the the direction of the group (continue with traditional meetups? Get involved in the city elections? Join the campaign to get more rapid transit for Toronto?) to be followed by Jim Harris’s presentation.
