Political shuffle
Water experts pool resources

Political shuffle
Prime Minister Stephen Harper is shifting his cabinet ministers around for a second time in less than a year. Some of his predecessors have played political musical chairs twice in one year but those moves were to deal with ministerial resignations - not the case here. A number of SFU experts can help flesh out what Harper is up to, why and whether his changes are wise ones:

  • Doug McArthur, public policy, 778.782.5208 (w), 604.786.0016 (cell), doug_mcarthur@sfu.ca
  • Gary Mauser, political marketing/business, 604.936.9141 (h), mauser@sfu.ca

Water experts pool resources
More than 2,000 of the world’s top water experts are meeting in Stockholm this week for World Water Week. They’ll examine critical water-related topics and chart water sustainability initiatives that could play a role in improving lives and protecting the environment.  SFU earth sciences professor John Clague and associate professor Diana Allen can provide some perspective.
