Elect It: Senate Reform Talk

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010 -- 5:00-6:30 PM -- Alumni Room (main floor Students' Union Building)

Last winter semester, the UACA held a postcard campaign on campus raising awareness about the issue of Senate reform. In continuation of our Association's efforts from last year, the UACA is hosting a Senate Reform Talk with the Honourable Senator Bert Brown and Senator-elect Betty Unger on Wednesday, February 24th. Senator Brown is the second democratically-elected senator in Canada’s history.

Refreshments will be provided outside the Alumni Room at 4:30 PM, and the main program will begin at 5:00 PM inside the Alumni Room. A meet & greet session with Senator Brown and Senator-elect Unger will follow afterwards.

In addition, Ryan Hastman, our Conservative candidate for the federal riding of Edmonton-Strahcona will also be in attendance.

It is not very often that we get to host members of the Red Chamber on campus, so we hope to see many of you there!

Update (February 24th, 2010 1:30 PM):

Since Team Canada will be playing in an important Olympic hockey game tonight against Russia at 5:30 PM, the UACA will have a special Team Canada Party/Senate Reform Talk tonight.
Refreshments will be served at 4:30 PM as planned by the Alumni Room in SUB, and the talk will still begin at 5:00 PM sharp. However, at 5:30 PM, we will pause the Senate Reform Talk and head over to SUB Stage to watch the first period of the hockey game. At the first intermission, our Senate Reform Talk will resume and Senator Brown and Betty Unger will take questions. Afterward that is all said and done, we will head over to Earl's on Campus to continue watching the game and have a Team Canada Party!
We  hope a lot of you will come out! Wear red for Team Canada and Senate Reform!
