Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Sher­brooke, Len­noxville

As part of its Café Sci­en­tifique Se­ries, Bishop’s Univer­sity in­vites mem­bers of the com­mu­nity with an in­ter­est in the cur­rent fed­eral elec­tion cam­paign to take part in a dis­cus­sion and ex­change of ideas around the topic “What Makes the 2015 Elec­tion Unique?”.

Hosted by the Univer­sity’s Re­search Of­fice, the event prom­ises to tackle a va­ri­ety of fac­tors that have com­bined to make the 2015 Fed­eral elec­tion unique in Cana­dian history, namely the New Demo­cratic Party polling at un­prece­dented lev­els across the coun­try, a cam­paign pe­riod run­ning twice as long as usual, and the re­cent pass­ing of the Fair Elec­tion Act.

The panel dis­cus­sion will in­clude: Dr. Michael McGre­gor, Pro­fes­sor in Bishop’s Univer­sity’s Depart­ment of Pol­i­tics and In­ter­na­tional Stud­ies, Dr. Pa­trick Fournier, Pro­fes­sor at the Univer­sité de Mon­tréal’s Depart­ment of Po­lit­i­cal Science, and David Price, Len­noxville Bor­ough Pres­i­dent at the City of Sher­brooke and for­mer Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment. Each will pro­vide the au­di­ence with his own unique in­sights from academia and the po­lit­i­cal trenches.

Any­one with a gen­eral in­ter­est in the 2015 Fed­eral Elec­tion is in­vited to come en­joy a beer and par­tic­i­pate ac­tively in what will surely be a lively and en­light­en­ing dis­cus­sion.

Don’t miss this Public Talk: ‘‘What Makes the 2015 Elec­tion Unique?’’, on Mon­day Septem­ber 28, 7 p.m. at the Golden Lion Pub and Brew­ery, 2896 Col­lege St., Len­noxville.
