EACH SPEAKER'S TALK WILL BE IN EITHER ENGLISH OR FRENCH AND WILL BE STREAMED LIVE TO THE CAP YOUTUBE CHANNEL WITH SUBTITLES DISPLAYED IN THE ALTERNATE LANGUAGE. More information on how to connect to each talk can be found on our web page https://www.cap.ca/programs/cap-lecture-tour/2021-lecture-tour/2021-lect... .
