    This class is hosted by a group of third-age learners in Toronto, Canada. It meets on the second Monday of every month both in and out of term time throughout the year. Participation is by videoconference with everyone at their home (or vacation) computer. No physical classroom is involved. All that's needed to join in is a computer (desktop, laptop or tablet) equipped with a webcam and high-speed Internet access. The two dozen participants are regular readers of The Economist from the U3AC, other UK-based U3As and "sister" organisations in Canada and the USA. At a typical session, the magazine's cover article is discussed first. The round-the-table discussion then moves on to other articles, with a wide range of perspectives represented.
