This second episode of The Hub’s new bi-weekly series, Frum Dialogues, features editor-at-large Sean Speer in conversation with leading author, journalist, and thinker David Frum.

The two discuss how Europe’s energy dependence on Russia is shaping its response to Russia’s aggression towards Ukraine and the role for Canadian natural gas exports to change this dynamic. They also speak about the launch of a new leadership race in the Conservative Party and what the party should do to maintain its unity and expand its reach to new and different voters.
