Our featured speaker will present on their whitepaper, which will be available online in advance, and our discussants will respond and provide commentary. Dialogue particpants will then have a chance to ask questions of the panel. Following this, participants will, in small groups, engage in a facilitated democratic dialogue and consider if the suggested public policy will enhance the prosperity of British Columbians.
A faciliator and note-taker will be provided to help guide the discussion, and to record the group's agreements, disagreements and recommendations. The dialogue results will be collated and posted on the BCPPI website within two weeks following the event.
We are interested in your opinion!
