      Saudi Arabia’s Mideast Role Speaker (via Skype) Dennis Horak, former Canadian ambassador to Saudi Arabia.

      Guest speaker Dennis Horak served as Canada's Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Oman, Bahrain and Yemen from 2015 until he was declared persona non grata and expelled from Saudi Arabia in 8/5/18 after the Government of Canada sent out a tweet calling for the immediate release of two Saudi activists.
