The CCFR will pay all expenses associated with the event.
For the donations to be awarded, both parties must act in a respectable and polite manner throughout the event and participate in the conversation in its entirety. Political talk will be kept to a minimum so the conversation can remain productive and on topic.
Format & Rules:
The moderator will begin the conversation by asking a question. The questions will be high level in scope as to provoke a discussion. For example, “is there evidence to support further regulation of firearms in Canada”? The first participant will have up to 3 minutes to form an answer. Then the other participant will have up to 3 minutes to provide a response. The conversation around this question will continue in this manner until such time as the participants agree to move on to the next question, or the moderator decides the current question has been satisfactorily explored.
Dr. Ahmed can accept this invitation in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org and must share her acceptance on the Doctors for Protection from Guns Twitter account to verify authenticity. Acceptance must be received by no later than January 10, 2020. No substitutions.
The rules are simple and will facilitate a productive conversation.
