EVENT: City Conversations—Federal Election Forum on Urban Issues, Oct 1

Spacing Events Vancouver Banner

With over 80% of the Canadian population now living in urban areas, it is time for a national conversation on key issues that affect our cities.  For this special pre-election edition of City Conversations, SFU Public Square has invited representatives from the Conservative, Liberal, New Democratic and Green parties to showcase their policies and vision for urban issues, focusing on housing and transit. It is important to note that this will be a professionally facilitated forum, not a debate, with an emphasis on productive conversation.

The event will begin with remarks from City of Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson, Chair of Canada’s Big City Mayors’ Caucus. Shauna Sylvester, Director of the SFU Centre for Dialogue, will be moderating the conversation.

Then it’s your turn to question, observe, and offer your perspectives and opinions.


WHEN: Thursday, October 1, 2015, 1:00 – 2:30 PM

WHERE: The Annex,  823 Seymour Street (2nd Floor)

RSVP: Event is FREE, but registeration is required due to limited seating

This SFU City Conversation is co-hosted by Simon Fraser University’s Centre for Dialogue, the Federation of Canadian Municipalities Big City Mayors’ Caucus, SFU Vancouver, and SFU’s City Program.
