The Central Forum is moving to a new location for its 39th season.

The popular speaker series will return March 3 at St. Giles Presbyterian Church at 770 Lakeshore Rd. The new venue was needed because of the planned closure of Central United, which had given the forum its name.

The program runs each Tuesday for consecutive seven weeks.

The doors at St. Giles open at 1 p.m. and the program begins at 1:30. Admission is still $4 per session.

This year’s lineup includes:


March 3 — Kieran Nelson, traveller and photographer: “Forbidden Frontiers: Journeys to the Edge.”


March 10 — Bob McCarthy, historian and author: “The Only Woman Executed in Canada After a Jury Recommended Mercy.”


March 17  — Dr. Gretchen Lescord, researcher and scientist: “Food for Thought: Chromium and Other Contaminants in Ontario Fish.
