People and the Planet before Profits
Wednesday, April 24, 6:00PM–8:00PM, Room 7000, SFU Harbour Centre
Sponsored by SFU's Institute for the Humanities
Svend Robinson on how capitalism is killing our planet and creating obscene levels of inequality, and why the October 21 federal election may be our last chance to change course. Svend served for over 25 years as federal NDP MP for Burnaby, including the SFU campus, and is back in federal politics as the NDP candidate for Burnaby North -Seymour. He will speak about the challenge of the IPCC Report on the climate crisis, the failure of the market to respond to the fundamental right to housing, the threat of the populist neo-liberal right, and how political leaders should respond to these crises.
