Live from Calgary, the anti-summit!

Pro and Cons: the anti-summit livestream


Tune in to watch live -- right here -- on Friday, November 1, 7PM Mountain Time, for a teach-in to hear from a range of provincial and national speakers about a different vision from the one being shared at this week-end's Conservative convention: one that focuses on progressive policies for people and the planet.

A teach-in presented by Common Causes, featuring:

David Suzuki (Scientist and environmentalist)
Maude Barlow (National Chairperson, the Council of Canadians)
Crystal Lameman (Beaver Lake Cree Nation)
Jean Lortie (Secretary-general, Confédération des syndicats nationaux)
Andrew Nikiforuk (Author and journalist)
Jim Stanford (Economist, UNIFOR)
Brigette DePape ("Rogue Page", writer and activist)
Paul Moist (National Presiden, tCUPE)
Michael Harris (writer, journalist, and documentary filmaker)
Chief Theresa Spence (Attawapiskat First Nation)
Moderated by Bill Phipps (Author and social and environmental activist)

This event is brought to you by Common Causes, an assembly of social movements dedicated to defending democracy, the environment, and human rights.


Great Rebecca - thanks for the heads up about this.


You're very welcome!


Looks like they might be having some technical difficulties


FYI, the event begins at 7PM Mountain Time. That's 6PM PST, 9PM EST, and 10PM down east. I think. 10:30PM in Newfoundland.
