The event, entitled "Facing Race",  is the third of three public forums in Canada that will explore pressing issues of race in Canada today. Live tapings will also be held in Vancouver and Halifax.

We'll be asking: "What does Quebec's distinct society mean for the pursuit of racial equity? And when identities clash, how do you move forward?"

CBC Daybreak's Mike Finnerty will open the forum and facilitate the Q&A.
