Events: Sheila Watt-Cloutier and 9th LaFontaine-Baldwin Lecture, Iqaluit (May 29, 2009)

Institute for Canadian Citizenship – The LaFontaine Baldwin Lecture, founded by John Ralston Saul in 2000, is one of the most prominent lecture series on issues concerning the public good in Canada. For the first time in its history, the LaFontaine Baldwin Lecture will be held in Canada’s North. Many conversations take place in Canada about the North, regarding its environment, sovereignty, and natural resources. Usually these conversations are held in the South and often without any input from Northerners. Sheila Watt-Cloutier, one of Canada’s leading public figures, has long been a national and international voice for Northerners and the North. Our hope is that her lecture will be a resounding contribution to the voice of people in the North and will potentially change the nature of future debates on Northern issues.  The second day on Saturday May 30, 2009 is devoted to a Town Hall with discussions about issues and arguments raised in the lecture.
