His Eminence Thomas Cardinal Collins, Archbishop of Toronto

Biography

Born and raised in Guelph, Ontario, Thomas Collins was ordained a priest in 1973.  He considered other paths, but was inspired by a high school English teacher who suggested he should consider the priesthood.

He earned undergraduate and master’s degrees in English, later pursuing theological training in Rome. Specializing in the Book of Revelation, he earned his licentiate in sacred scripture from the Pontifical Bible Institute and a doctorate in theology from Gregorian University.

He was named Bishop of St. Paul, Alberta in 1997 and Archbishop of Edmonton in 1999.  Pope Benedict XVI appointed Archbishop Collins as Archbishop of Toronto in December 2006.  On February 18, 2012, he was elevated to the College of Cardinals in Rome.  Cardinal Collins was one of 115 cardinal-electors to participate in the 2013 Conclave in Rome, where Pope Francis was elected to succeed Pope Benedict XVI.

Albert Tucker


Albert Victor Tucker
(1923-2017), the second principal of Glendon College and University Professor Emeritus of York University, died of a heart attack at his home on Shaftesbury Avenue in Toronto on Wednesday, October 25, in his 94th year.

Born in East Toronto, he dropped out of school to help his widowed mother and worked for some years in a clerical job in Toronto. During the Second World War he served with RCAF ground crew in Britain, France and the Low Countries, then took advantage of the educational opportunities this afforded him. He completed secondary school and entered the University of Toronto to study history. Upon completing his M.A., he took a Ph.D. in British history at Harvard University. He taught briefly at the University of Illinois in Urbana before joining the faculty of the University of Western Ontario, where he taught until 1966, the year Dean of Arts John T. Saywell recruited him to become a member of the York University History department.

The first principal of Glendon, Escott Reid, and the head of the History department, Edgar McInnis, persuaded Tucker to stay at Glendon instead of moving with most of the historians to the new campus at Keele and Steeles. He succeeded McInnis in 1968 and Reid at the end of 1969, continuing as head of History until 1973 while serving as principal until 1975.

Tucker’s early scholarly work was in nineteenth-century British military history, but he soon expanded his interests, and 1972 saw the appearance of his book A History of English Civilization. His interests shifted to Canadian business history, leading to the publication of Steam into Wilderness: Ontario Northland Railway 1902-1962 (1978). He then prepared a history of Labatt’s Breweries, but internal corporate politics blocked its publication. He taught at Glendon College and in the graduate department of History, as well as in the joint York-U of T program in Victorian Studies, until his retirement in 1993. In 1988 he was appointed University Professor in recognition of his stellar services to York. From 1997 to 2007 he served as president of The York University Retirees’ Association.

Tucker never married; he is survived by a niece, Constance Dykes, and a nephew, John Tucker, grand-nieces and grand-nephews. He is remembered as an inspiring teacher, a helpful colleague, and a gentle human being who gave generously of his time and money to York and Glendon. He established scholarships, made donations to the Leslie Frost Library, and initiated and funded the annual John Holmes Memorial Lecture at Glendon as well the Albert Tucker Visiting Speakers’ Series of the Glendon History department.

GLOBAL MIGRATION 

The migrant crisis in Europe and the Middle East has shaped the political discourse around the world and specifically in Europe and North America. The desire to take back control over immigration propelled many Britons to vote for Brexit. In the US elections, Donald Trump promised to crack down on illegal immigration that got him elected last November.

The war in Syria and the refugee crisis continues to occupy political leaders as to how to address the migration and refugee crisis. While OECD reports that overall G20 countries have benefited from global migration – from economic and labour market perspectives – yet immigration and refugee issues continue to dominate public discourse.

In 2015, the number of migrants worldwide was the highest ever recorded, having reached 244 million (from 232 million in 2013). Europe remains the highest destination for migrants, followed by the US, Australia, Canada and other part of the Middle East.  To lead the public discussion on Global Migration, the Glendon School of Public and International Affairs is organizing a conference to debate the ramifications of migration.

At the Glendon Global Debates, experts will discuss some of these issues and will touch on the following:

  • Political, economic, social and cultural impact of global migration in the West and around the globe;
  • The Middle East crisis and the impact of immigration and refugee crisis in the Western countries;
  • How is global migration and refugee crisis impacting Canada? What can we do better?
  • What are some of the new ideas to address migration and refugee issues?

GLOBAL POPULISM: POLITICAL, ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL IMPLICATIONS

The rise of populism has rattled the political establishment. Brexit, the victory of Donald Trump and the support for right-wing political parties in Germany, Austria, the rise of populist movements in the rest of the world have shocked the so-called elites. Much head scratching has resulted as  Western leaders seek to work out why large chunks of their electorate, in the West, are rejecting traditional parties. Is it as a result of the 2007-2008 economic crisis?  The decade since the financial crisis suggests that the system of economic governance that has held sway for the past four decades is broken. What are some of the other causes of global populism? How should moderate leaders respond? To lead the public discussion on Global Populism, the Glendon Campus of York University is organizing a conference to debate the topics.

At the Glendon Global Debate, experts will discuss some of these issues and will touch on the following:

  • What is populism and what are its roots in the current context?
  • Is populism a result of growing inequality or something else, like migration processes?
  • What are the political, economic, social and cultural impact of global populism in the West and around the globe?
  • How is global populism impacting Canada? Is the economic system working for everyone?
  • What are some of the new ideas to address populism – new industrial strategy?
