Breakfast With a Fascinating Canadian
Dr. Jim Spatz

Members of the media are invited to attend the latest installment in the Breakfast with a Fascinating Canadian series, featuring keynote speaker Dr. Jim Spatz.

The series, which started in 2003, has had 17 speakers from a variety of sectors across Canada in support of the Museum.

A well known Halifax real estate developer and a former emergency room physician, Spatz will touch on several topics related to immigration, including his own personal story arriving at Pier 21 from Europe in 1950 with his parents, who were Holocaust survivors.

Following his speech, Spatz will sign copies of the biography on his father, Simon Spatz, which was released earlier this year.

The event is being presented in English.
