This is a series of lectures I'd love to attend if I lived in Ottawa. I was going to send the URL to Ottawa friends who might be interested, but I checked it out first. Nowhere does it say these lectures are open to the public and there is nothing online as to what the cost might be. Does anyone have the answers to my questions?
