Come to Stratford early and stay late! Construction delays may be significant in summer 2019 so be sure not to miss out on any fun!

Hwy 7: Adding a round-about at Line 26 between Stratford and St. Marys/London/401 W

Daytime delays may be possible during August, however, all roads and the round-about are open.

Hwy 6 to Embro/401: Replacement of large culvert Aug-Nov

Expect delays but road will not be closed. Hwy 7 detour is suggested as above, if there is an overlap.

Hwy 8 between Stratford and Shakespeare: In progress

Beginning in early June, stretches of this road between the west end of Shakespeare and the east end of Stratford will be reduced on weekdays to a single lane, with flag people controlling traffic in both directions. Delays may be lengthy, so please allow additional time for your trip. (Both lanes are expected to be open on evenings and weekends.)

Ideas: Einstein and After

The Disrupters
In partnership with CBC Radio’s Ideas, a five-part series that explores the roots of modern identity through the ideas of five people who flipped the table of conventional thought.

Einstein and After
The idea that everything in the universe is actually “relative” – connected, but also disconnected from any fixed point – has been making our heads spin for a hundred years. So where are we in all this – a world of mysterious quantum laws that no one really understands? Who are we now?

Panellists:
Doreen Fraser, associate professor of philosophy at the University of Waterloo, with a particular interest in the philosophy of physics, philosophy of science and history of physics
Arthur B. McDonald, Nobel Prize winner in Physics, 2015
Lee Smolin, theoretical physicist and faculty member at the Perimeter Institute, and author of (most recently) Einstein's Unfinished Revolution: The Search for What Lies Beyond the Quantum

Get your books signed! Lee Smolin will sign copies of his works following the event. We’ll have copies available for purchase, or you are welcome to bring your own.

This event is wheelchair accessible.
