2019 Keynote - Rick Mercer


Rick Mercer chronicles, satirizes, and ultimately celebrates all that is great and irreverent about Canada. Known as “Canada’s Unofficial Opposition,” Mercer is our most popular comic and a political satirist who knows exactly what matters to regular Canadians and what makes them laugh.

As 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of CSA Group, what better way to celebrate this incredible milestone than with a keynote address from one of Canada’s fiercest critics and sharpest minds? Rick Mercer’s talk connects to the past, evaluates our present, and looks forward into the future with hope. Don’t miss your chance to hear from one of Canada’s greatest comics!
