Chelsea Handler is getting blunt with Canadians.
Ahead of Ottawa’s cannabis legalization on Oct. 17, the Los Angeles comedian will head north for a series of fireside chats about marijuana and political activism.
Handler will make seven appearances in partnership with Civilized, a New Brunswick-based digital media outlet. The “live town hall events” will be moderated by its publisher, Derek Riedle.
Handler, who formerly hosted late-night talk show “Chelsea Lately” and her own self-titled Netflix series, is an outspoken supporter of cannabis use.
Handler will then appear in Montreal (Oct. 4), Ottawa (Oct. 5), Toronto (Oct. 6) and Halifax (Oct. 7).
