Ralph Nader came to Hamilton tonight to speak about his latest book “Told You So” at the Hamilton Public Library. The sold-out lecture was co-sponsored by Bryan Prince Bookseller, OPIRG McMaster and the HPL. OPIRG’s Coordinator of Volunteers Randy Kay was happy to meet Nader, the person responsible for bringing PIRGs to campuses in the 1970s.

Nader’s resume of successful citizen engagement stretches back to the 1950s, and the author of 1965’s “Unsafe at Any Speed” has certainly not lost any of the passion all these years later.

Citizen engagement is something Nader knows well, and he shared insights on how to get things done in a corporate society.

OPIRG Tweets during Nader’s talk give you an idea of some of the topics touched upon:

    Heroic figures in our society not held up for emulation which would create more heroic figures.
