Event Details

The 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation has prompted a national dialogue on the nature of our country, its history, and the promise and challenges of the future. As part of this national conversation, the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies at UBC has partnered with the Royal Society of Canada to hold a public discussion about Canada’s Constitution and its relevance to the key issues of our country in 2017. Five leading thinkers will comment on our Constitution, using the critical lenses of Indigenous rights, environmentalism and social justice. The conversation will highlight specific areas where Constitutional progress is needed to support our country’s evolution towards greater equality, inclusion, and justice. 

Speakers

  • David Suzuki
  • Grand Chief Ed John
  • Jocelyn Stacey Peter A. Allard School of Law, UBC
  • John Borrows University of Victoria Law
  • DJ Larkin Pivot Legal Society

The event will be moderated by Margot Young and Joel Bakan of the Peter A. Allard School of Law, UBC.

This event is part of national program, the Constitutional Wave, a series of discussions sweeping across the country from Halifax to Vancouver and a number of cities in between. We invite you to join the conversation as we consider how to shape the future of our country.
