Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

“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.
