He holds an undergrad in sociology from York University, a Masters in Theological studies from Tyndale University, and is currently a PhD student at the University of Toronto. Wesley has participated in numerous talks and interfaith dialogue events at universities across Canada and has been participating in public dialogues on issues of faith, belief, and religion for the last seven years.
