Three local politicians to speak at Champlain College
“Youth and Electoral Politics” is the title of this year’s Tait/ Chattopadhyay Memorial Humanities Lecture. It will be held today at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 23 in Bandeen Hall located on the campus of Bishop’s University.
Pierre-Luc Dusseault, NDP MP for Sherbrooke, Christine Ouellet, Sherbrooke city councillor, and Jean-Simon Campbell of Option Nationale will participate in a panel discussion about the various types of political involvement and why so many young people shun electoral politics. They will also speak about their own experiences as young people in the political arena.
The Tait-Chattopadhyay Memorial Humanities Lecture is an annual event that has been organized for more than two decades by the Humanities Department of the Lennoxville Campus of Champlain Regional College. The purpose of the event is to encourage students and members of the community to reflect critically on intellectual, social and cultural issues in contemporary society.
Refreshments will be served prior to the event in the lobby of Bandeen Hall.
