Democracy Talks Next Week!

Thursday, October 15 from 11:30 - 12:30 in L208: Democracy Talks

Talk of democracy and our political process seems to be everywhere these days as we prepare for the upcoming election--but we know that voter turnout seems to be forever declining in Canada, and the discussions around politics, for too many of us, drop away once election day is over. 

Samara would like to change that.

Samara is a charitable organization dedicated to educating Canadians about democracy. Named after the maple keys that fall to the ground this time of year and take root everywhere, Samara believes that true change can also take root and grow. 

A local representative from Samara will join us at Lambton College on Thursday, October 15 from 11:30-12:30 in L208 to facilitate a non-partisan conversation about the democratic process. 

I had a preview of the presentation yesterday, and it’s really memorable and engaging. Please consider joining us no matter how familiar you are with the political process: this conversation is open to all students, faculty, and staff, and it will be most successful if we have a diverse group of participants.
