Chief Correspondent of CBC News & Anchor of The National
Peter Mansbridge stands at such a level of public respect and visibility that, for many Canadians, he is not simply a newscaster: he is the daily voice of a nation. As the anchor of CBC's flagship nightly news show, The National, he brings comprehension, levity, and a uniquely Canadian perspective to the stories shaping our nation and the world. For all the accolades (12 Geminis and universal acknowledgment as one of the greatest broadcast journalists in Canadian history), Mansbridge remains an astoundingly grounded individual.
Mansbridge is also the author of the national bestseller, Mansbridge: One on One, and is a contributor on 100 Days That Changed Canada, a collection of essays chronicling 100 days that helped define Canada. He has received numerous honorary degrees from universities across the country, and he has also been recognized by leading universities in the United States and the United Kingdom. In 2009, he was named Chancellor of Mount Allison University in New Brunswick.
Canada and Canadians in a Changing World
Peter Mansbridge ties all of his talks together with his desire to see Canadians celebrate their heritage: to recognize that a shared national story has shaped us at both an individual and a collective level. This story is being written, and re-written, every day, by all Canadians. Drawing on the world leaders he's interviewed, Mansbridge also talks about leadership: what it takes and how it can be achieved, whether in politics, academia, or business.
