NDP leader Thomas Mulcair to speak at Kwantlen
NDP leader Thomas Mulcair is visiting Richmond’s Kwantlen campus on Tuesday, Feb. 18.
The leader of the Official Opposition will sit down with Kwantlen Polytechnic University president and vice-chancellor Dr. Alan Davis for a discussion in the debut of Kwantlen’s President’s Dialogue Series.
Mulcair and Davis are expected to cover a wide range of environmental issues, including energy development, emission control, climate change, the Keystone XL pipeline and the Enbridge Northern Gateway project. The dialogue is open to the public.
The President’s Dialogue Series is a new initiative launched by Davis. All speakers in the series are considered leaders in the public and private sectors, both locally and globally.
“KPU has an important role to play in providing a forum for the exchange of ideas on key issues that face our society,” says Davis. “We hope, through these dialogues, to bring local, national and international leaders to our region and to invite the university community and the public to hear from them directly.”
It takes place from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 at the Melville Centre for Dialogue at Kwantlen’s Richmond campus (8771 Lansdowne Rd.).
