2008-10-02

The Alma Mater Society (AMS) will host a debate for the federal candidates of Kingston and the Islands on Tuesday, Oct. 7 at 7 pm in Wallace Hall in the John Deutsch University Centre.

Incumbent Peter Milliken (Liberal Party of Canada), Brian Abrams (Conservative Party of Canada), Eric Walton (Green Party of Canada), and Rick Downes (New Democratic Party) have confirmed their attendance. Kim Nossal, head of the Department of Political Science, will moderate.

“If students want political leaders to focus on issues relevant to post-secondary accessibility and quality, we must take the opportunity to engage with them directly – political engagement is a two-way street.” says Matthew Lombardi, AMS Academic Affairs Commissioner, event facilitator. “This debate is the ideal avenue for Queen's students to ask relevant questions right here on our campus, and become informed about the candidates vying to represent us federally.”

Students and the public are encouraged to attend.

Details: Matthew Lombardi, Academic Affairs Commissioner at aac@ams.queensu.ca or (613) 533-3001 ext. 74818.
