FEATURED EVENTS IN VANCOUVER
A Future for Memory: Art and Life After the Great East Japan Earthquake, February 11 to September 5, 2021
Hillary Clinton spoke to a packed house at the Vancouver Convention Centre on Thursday night.
The event was part of the former Secretary of State’s 15-city speaking tour, during which she is talking about her 2016 presidential run and the aftermath of her loss.
The event was moderated by real estate developer Bob Rennie, and according to some in attendance Clinton touched on various subjects, including future ramifications of Russian cyber warfare on Western democracies, her reaction to Doug Jones beating Roy Moore to become Alabama’s next Senator, negotiating on the global stage, and finding success in the workplace as a woman.
Those who attended the event and saw Hillary live shared their shots of the evening on social media.
I really enjoyed listening to @hillaryclinton speak about her experience with the 2016 US Election this morning. The particular poignant parts of her talk for me included: 1) The future ramifications of Russian cyber warfare on Western democracies 2) Her reaction to Doug Jones beating Roy Moore to become Alabama’s next Senator 3) The delicate nature of negotiating on the global stage and why #Trump is a bumbling fool (hint: He drinks 12 Diet Cokes A DAY and watches 8 HOURS of cable news each day) 4) Finding success in the workplace as a woman and being a woman in politics Thanks for sharing this opportunity with me @shirinescarcha! ♀ . . #hillaryclinton #politics #vancouver
I came, I saw, I listened – Hillary was a fabulous, thoughtful and intelligent speaker – well worth the price of admission and I’m glad I came – and although I’m not a fan i left with some additional perspective that I didn’t have before I came. I can see how and why so many people are inspired by her – I would have preferred for her to be interviewed by a more independent panel that would have asked her some tougher questions so I could hear her candidly answer them in her own words .. as where instead what I got was Bob Renney the condo magnate who gushed over her like a fanboy for 90 minutes rather than as independent facilitator and moderator but even without the hard questions she still guided us on a 90 minute tour of her brain, experience and ideas and like I said I leave with more perspective and respect for her than when I came and I was glad to be a part of it and to listen. #HillaryClinton #HillaryLive #Vancouver #Politics #Engage #Participate #WashingtonComesToVancouver #IShouldHaveSprungForTbeVIP @aboller17
“The best way to deal with sexism in politics, is to get more women involved in politics, and start a conversation”. Despite Hillary Clinton looking like an ant from so far away Rupy and I had a really great time! Hillary was extremely well spoken, educated and conveyed a great message to young women in politics, economics and commerce. It was very nice to see a women in power with such a strong moral compass and confidence in herself, and the women she worked with. Also she sh*t talked Donald Trump a lot which was great!
