The theme of the 2019 annual meeting of the Canadian Political Science Association is All Sides of Things: Speaking Truth to People. In choosing that theme, the CPSA calls for participants to develop and consider novel means of addressing the key political and social issues of our times. As those who enjoy positions of power and influence seem increasingly bent on distorting reality to suit their purpose and on professing untruths as incontrovertible facts, political scientists can play a role in reversing that toxic trend by insuring that their research findings reflect solid evidence rather than ideological proclivities. Speaking plainly, presenting the facts unadorned and contributing to public debates without ulterior motives are key objectives pursued by Canadian political scientists. The 2019 annual meeting of the CPSA will facilitate the realization of these objectives by offering participants numerous opportunities to explore alternative ways of fostering and experiencing genuinely democratic citizenship.
