Post-Election Responses: What it means for Calgary and Alberta

Alternate Text or Title of article
7:30 a.m.- 9:00 a.m.

Albertans are watching the upcoming federal election with feelings that range from hope to dread.  The country is polarized.  Alberta’s economy is at a precipice.  The results of a federal election have never been so critical to Alberta’s future.  Various scenarios exist.  Both the Liberals and Conservatives could yet eke out a majority.  However, polls point to a minority government.  In that case, Canada’s federal political agenda is anybody’s guess.

That’s why The School of Public Policy will assemble an expert panel to provide fast insight following the election.  Please join us on October the 24th as we dissect the election result, and determine the impacts, good or bad, on Alberta.

Featured panelists: 

  • Dr. Sandip Lalli, President and CEO, Calgary Chamber
  • David Mitchell, President and CEO, Calgary Chamber of Voluntary Organizations
  • Dr. PG Forest, Director, James S. and Barbara A. Palmer Chair in Public Policy, The School of Public Policy
  • Janet Brown, Pollster and Political Commentator

Additional panelists to be announced.
