The president of the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) spoke to a younger conference audience than he usually does today, as the Montreal Space Symposium was conceived and organized by students.

He provided an overview of current CSA programs then focused on some of the future programs students might be able to work on. You can watch the full speech below including a Q&A sessions after the talk.

Note: The live streaming we tried today was experimental using a mobile phone connection. While the video quality is good, the audio is not optimal. However it gets better mid-way through his talk to the end.
