Do you have some politics you’ve got to get off your chest? Come to The Duke of Wellington Pub at 33 Erb Street West in Waterloo, Ontario Map on Thursday, 22 May 2014 at 7:00pm iCal

All the candidates for the Ontario election are invited too, so you’ll have a chance to bend the ear of your local politician or future politician.

And, of course, we’ll tell them that Electoral Reform is the foundational issue for this election — proportional representation will make all our votes count!

Disagree? Let’s talk over a beverage, bangers and mash!

–Bob.

CETA Panel Discussion — Thursday, 1 May 2014

This Thursday the Fair Vote Canada Waterloo Region Chapter is hosting a panel discussion on CETA, the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement. On the panel are Stephen Woodworth, Member of Parliament for Kitchener Centre, and Angelo DiCaro, trade researcher for Unifor. The discussion will be moderated by Cathy MacLellan.

Cathy provided a link to a paper from the Canadian Government, Technical Summary of Final Negotiated Outcomes, Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (.PDF file, 756.6 kBytes). This document consists of 26 pages of bullet points, which look more like the minutes of a meeting than a policy statement or an analysis. Perhaps there is a more in-depth coverage on the Government’s propaganda information site, Canada’s Economic Action Plan.

Or perhaps you should come to the panel discussion!


What: CETA Panel Discussion
When: Thursday, 1 May 2014 from 7:00pm to 8:30pm iCal
Where: Lyle S. Hallman Faculty of Social Work, 120 Duke St., Kitchener, Ontario Map
