Gerald Seib is the most recent Executive Washington Editor of the Wall Street Journal. Now on executive leave to teach journalism at his alma mater, he oversaw for many years Washington coverage of a combined bureau of reporters and editors for both the Journal and Dow Jones Newswires, that provides coverage of the White House, Congress, politics, economics, the Supreme Court, national security affairs, health and regulatory issues. He is the author of the recently released book "We Should Have Seen It Coming: From Reagan to Trump--A Front-Row Seat to a Political Revolution". Mr. Seib appears regularly on networks such as Fox Business News, ABC and CNN as a commentator on Washington affairs. He began writing his column in the spring of 1993 and assumed responsibility for the Journal/NBC News poll.
In December 1992, he became a news editor responsible for the Journal's national political coverage from Washington and around the country. Mr. Seib was part of the team from the Journal that won the 2001 Pulitzer Prize in the “breaking news” category for its coverage of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. In 2004, the William Allen White School of Journalism at his alma mater, the University of Kansas, named Mr. Seib the winner of the 2005 William Allen White Foundation's national citation. Past winners of this award include the Journal’s Vermont Royster, Walter Cronkite and Bob Woodward.
David M. Shribman
David Shribman was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1995 for his coverage of Washington and the American political scene. He writes a weekly column, "My Point," syndicated throughout the United States, and a biweekly column for the Globe and Mail. Mr. Shribman has occupied the positions of executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and assistant managing editor, columnist and Washington bureau chief of the Boston Globe. He is now the J.W. McConnell Professor of Practice at the Max Bell School of Public Policy, McGill University. A dual citizen of the United States and Canada, he served as national political correspondent for The Wall Street Journal, and covered Congress and national politics for The New York Times. Mr. Shribman was a regular panelist on the PBS show "Washington Week," has appeared on both “Face the Nation” and “Meet the Press,” and is a frequent analyst for the BBC and CBC. A most recent Globe and Mail article by Mr. Shribman, "On this Fourth of July, the United’ States of America is anything but" points out in stunning fashion the evolution over time of American society into its current perilous state.
The panel discussion will be moderated by Raymond Bachand, former Quebec Minister of Finance, Chief Quebec negotiator for the new North American Trade Accord (USMCTA), Strategic Advisor with the international law firm Norton Rose Fulbright and a graduate of the Harvard Business School, assisted by Tom Creary, Founder and past Chairman of the Quebec Chapter of The American Chamber of Commerce in Canada.
