You are invited to a Convocation Dialogue with the Right Honourable Kim Campbell and Mr David Baines, both receiving honourary degrees at SFU's 2014 convocation.

Ms Campbell was MP for Vancouver Centre and Prime Minister of Canada, and Mr Baines was a distinguished and widely read investigative reporter for the Vancouver Sun.

Dialogue on the Intersection of Business and Politics: What happens when morality collides with profits?
Thursday, June 12, 2014, 4:45–6 pm
Library Room 2020

Former prime minister Kim Campbell and former Vancouver Sun business investigative journalist David Baines discuss immoral and/or illegal conduct in the business world and the role of media, governments and universities in regulating the economy and containing the excesses of capitalism. How do these challenges — developing more responsible governance and business — affect graduate students when entering their professions?

These distinguished recipients of honorary degrees at the Convocation are ready to discuss these issues with you — please RSVP and join us!

Refreshments will be served. As seating is limited, please RSVP online.

This event is organized by Burnaby Mountain College.

David Baines is a retired Vancouver Sun securities columnist who devoted 25 years and 3,887 columns to exposing illegal and unethical investment deals, winning four National Newspaper awards and the Bruce Hutchison Lifetime Achievement Award from the Jack Webster Foundation.

He will be receiving an honorary degree from SFU on Tuesday, June 10, 2014.

The Right Honourable Kim Campbell, PC, CC, OBC, QC, served as Canada’s 19th and first female Prime Minister in 1993 and continues to promote global democracy, international cooperation and women in politics, for which she was appointed a Companion of the Order of Canada.

She will be receiving an honorary degree from SFU on Wednesday, June 11, 2014.
