October 8, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT


Event is open to CIC members and one guest. Please make reservations to cicpip2018@gmail.com

In the past decade, John has given many talks across Canada on petroleum rivalries and conflicts and his book “Oil and World Politics: The real story of today’s conflict zones – Iraq, Afghanistan, Venezuela, Ukraine and more” was published in 2018. In his talk, and drawing from his new book, John will address recent conflicts in the Middle East, the drivers behind foreign military interventions, tensions around international waterways, and the use of sanctions, interventions and political interference as major powers continue to jockey for control of the world’s supply of oil and natural gas.
