For Lower Mainlanders, we have a local Canada150 event planned at the lovely campus of Kwantlen University, right here in Surrey (you must reserve tickets online, or contact Al Payne from Sukh Dhaliwal's office for info on registration - as they are apparently organizing this satellite feed today).
Event: Canada at 150: Rising to the Challenge
Date: Saturday, March 27, 2010
Time: 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM
Place: Kwantlen Polytechnic University Conference Centre - 12666 72 Ave, Surrey
We are tackling one challenge at the local satellite conference at Kwantlen University:
Energy, Environment and Economy in 2017: Growth and Responsibility. Canada must harness the link between environmental sustainability and economic growth in order to make us a clean energy leader. We will be looking at how Canada can create a more sustainable economy to both protect our environment and create jobs for ourselves and for future generations.
Canada at 150: Rising to the Challenge is a non-partisan event organized by the Liberal Party of Canada. It is rooted in the proud tradition of the 1991 Aylmer Conference and the 1960 Kingston Conference, organized by Prime Ministers Lester B. Pearson and Jean Chretien while in Opposition. These events played pivotal roles in shaping earlier decades. The conference runs from March 26th through 28th in Montreal.
