On the evening of Monday, April 4, 2016, the retired bishop of the Diocese of New Westminster, the Right Reverend Michael Ingham was one of the speakers participating in the Walrus Talks Spirituality series. The event was sponsored by the United Church Observer magazine in collaboration with The Walrus Foundation and took place at Trinity-St. Paul’s Centre for Faith, Justice and the Arts in Toronto and live-streamed across Canada. Seven leading thinkers examined faith, culture, community and the role of spirituality in our secular society.

More than 500 people attended the event in Toronto, and audiences at more than 60 churches from coast-to-coast gathered to host simultaneous events for the nationwide conversation.

The focus of each talk was to finish the statement "A Canada without religion is..." Bishop Michael finished the phrase with the words "..would be a void into which secular demons will rush."
