20th Annual Mel Smith Lecture and Scholarship Presentation
March 14 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PDT
Trinity Western University is pleased to announce that the 20th Annual Mel Smith Lecture will feature Preston Manning. Come discover what Canadians with an understanding of and commitment to the Christian faith can contribute to political discourse and action in politically tumultuous times. The lecture is open to the public and will be followed by a question-and-answer period.
Mr. Manning’s lecture explores:
– Wide spread disillusionment with politics and governments generally.
– The rise of populist forces world wide.
– Rejection of the left-centre-right conceptualization of politics by next generation Canadians.
– Polarization over energy and the environment. Lack of consensus on how to reduce income inequality.
– National unity strained by western alienation and identity politics, with a federal election looming in the fall of 2019.
During the event, the recipient of the 2019-20 Mel Smith Scholarship will be announced. Each year, this scholarship is awarded to a TWU student of exceptional academic ability, majoring in Canadian history or political science.
Date: Thursday, March 14, 2019
Time: 7:00 p.m.
Place: Northwest Building Auditorium, twu campus
Admission is free, and a reception will follow.
