Cafe Canada: Canadian Resources-Salvation or Sellout?

  • Fri, November 30, 2012
  • 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
  • Mahone Bay Centre, 45 School Street, Mahone Bay
The South Shore Chapter of the Council of Canadians is proud to present its second in a series of events examining the democratic process in Canada through a focus on specific issues.

This event will address the issue of Canada as a resource-rich nation. How do we manage our resources in a responsible and sustainable manner? How do we interact with other countries who wish to access them? How can citizens make their voices heard in the development of policies that influence our resource economy?

To find some answers to these pressing questions, the South Shore Chapter is hosting a Café Canada entitled “Canadian Resources: Salvation or Sellout?” The session is scheduled for Friday evening, November 30 from 7:30 – 9:30 at the Mahone Bay Centre. Our guest will be Christopher Majka, a Halifax-based scientist, environmentalist, and writer, who will explore ideas about our country’s wealth of natural resources, and the manner in which decisions are made about its development. He will address his recent research about the Canadian resource economy and how our government's policies will affect the future of our country.

There is no cost for the session, but donations will be accepted to cover expenses. Refreshments, including fair trade coffee, will be served. For more information, contact southshore.coc@gmail.com or call 527-2928.
