Preston Manning Lecture in Moose Jaw
Preston Manning will be speaking in Moose Jaw at the Heritage Inn at 7:00 Wednesday Feb. 9. Admission is free.
For the first time in its history, the University of Regina’s Woodrow Lloyd Lecture is being held outside the Queen City, rather to be held in Moose Jaw on Wednesday evening.
The speaker for this year’s lecture is Preston Manning, former federal Leader of the Opposition.
The lecture is being held in Moose Jaw as part of the university’s 2010-11 Community Connections Tour. Jointly organized by the university’s faculty of arts and Regina’s Canadian Plains Research Center, the lecture will take place at 7 p.m. at the Heritage Inn. Admission to the talk is free.
Titled “Western Canadian Democracy: A Backward and a Forward Look,” Manning’s lecture will “explore the bottom-up grassroots democratic traditions of Western Canada and their relevance for today and the future,” according to a University of Regina press release. He will speak of how democratic freedoms can be harnessed in the agendas of all levels of government.
