Registration at 11:45 a.m.; Lunch and program at Noon
The Fairmont Palliser,Crystal Ballroom, 133 9th Ave. S.W.
The School of Public Policy and The Van Horne Institute, in Partnership with Encana, present The Honourable Denis Lebel, Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities
Surface, rail and air transport are the lifeblood of a modern economy – especially one that is based on the movement of goods and raw resources. Canada’s vast distances are a difficult enough barrier in themselves – any public policy that snarls transport will slow the economy.
Join The School of Public Policy in welcoming Hon. Denis Lebel, Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities for his first major speech in Calgary. Minister Lebel will speak to the future of Canada’s federal transportation policies, and how Canada can keep its economy on the move.
