Adapted from the popular website TheBeaverton.com, the weekly TV satirical news show on The Comedy Network covers Canadian and world events with deft, scathing scrutiny. Hear about the process and how a news item qualifies for that special Beaverton treatment in this talk featuring co-anchors Emma Hunter and Miguel Rivas, along with show co-creators, co-showrunners and co-executive producers Luke Gordon Field and Jeff Detsky. Adrienne Batra, editor-in-chief of the Toronto Sun, moderates. Doors open 6:30pm | Discussion 7:00pm | Reception 8:30pm For tickets: https://cjf-beaverton.eventbrite.ca
