Join us to help shape the vision for a Green New Deal for Canada.
Our keynote speaker is Dr. Gordon Laxer, political economist, founding director of Parkland Institute of Alberta and a specialist on pipelines, energy and the environment. Following the lecture, Dr. Angela Carter, Assistant Professor, Political Science & Balsillie School of International Affairs Fellow, University of Waterloo, and Dr. John Peters, Associate Professor, Labour Studies, Laurentian University, will engage in discussion and Q&A.
This event will help us to prepare for a Green New Deal town hall being held at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Kitchener on June 19, 2019. You are welcome to come to both the lecture and the town hall or to attend either one. Your RSVP on this site will indicate your attendance for the lecture only. Please RSVP at http://act.greennewdealcanada.ca/town-halls/kitchener72 for the town hall on June 19, 2019 at St. Andrew’s.
The conversation about a Green New Deal for Canada is being led from the ground up through town halls bringing together people from all walks of life to discuss our vision for a new economy -- one that cuts global warming pollution, sees the full implementation of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, the Right to Free Prior and Informed Consent, and the TRC recommendations, creates millions of green jobs, and makes sure no one gets left behind. The input from these town halls will be used to inform a vision for a Green New Deal for all.
