Breaking Bread is a project from the TRU Students’ Union that connects students with community leaders through small group discussions around shared topics of interest.

On October 29, 2020 the Union hosted Dr. Jeffrey Meyers for a virtual discussion with students before the American Election. Dr. Meyers is part of the Faculty of Law at TRU as well as a member of the Bar of the State of New York and a frequent commentator on American politics.

Questions considered by the group included:

  • The perceived validity of the election results
  • The role of populism in this election
  • What the impact may be on Canada
  • The ways in which COVID has led to changing campaign strategies
  • And other areas

If you are interested in being a part of a future discussion, let us know at We’re also happy to hear from you if you have a great idea for a discussion topic or community leader to get in touch with.
