The Atlantic Institute for Market Studies invites you to an AIMS Luncheon Briefing with Stéphane Dion, Member of Parliament for Saint-Laurent-Cartierville. Dion will be discussing the future of Canada’s political system.
Date: Thursday, November 3rd
Time: 11:30am registration / 12:00pm lunch
Place: The Halifax Club, 1682 Hollis Street, Halifax
As a consequence of the last federal election, Dion suggests that several new realities have emerged. The realignment of federal political parties, the federal government’s intention to establish an elected Senate, and the re-balancing of demographic representation in the House of Commons: these new realities raise serious questions regarding the future of our political life in Canada. For example, given the present demographic trends, what weight will the Atlantic Provinces carry in Ottawa in the future? Dion will discuss these topics and welcome questions.
Stéphane Dion was a professor of political science at Université de Moncton and Université de Montréal. A former Minister and Leader of the Official Opposition, he has been a Member of Parliament since 1996 and today serves as Liberal Critic for Intergovernmental Affairs and Democratic Reform.
