During his election campaign, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau promised to make life better in the North. This past summer, during the last Tragically Hip concert, lead singer Gord Downie called on Trudeau to keep that promise. We’d like to show you how research at the University of Guelph is contributing.

The panel will be moderated by Malcolm Campbell, vice-president, research, University of Guelph.

The speakers are:

  • Prof. Sherilee Harper, Population Medicine, Ontario Veterinary College: “How is Climate Change Affecting Northern Communities?”
  • Prof. Merrit Turetsky, Department of Integrative Biology, College of Biological Science: “Thawing Permafrost and Mega-fires: Why Climate Change in the North Influences the Entire Globe.”
  • Prof. Ben Bradshaw, Department of Geography, College of Social and Applied Human Sciences, “Are Large-scale Mining Operations Good for the North?

Location: Guelph Civic Museum, 52 Norfolk St., Guelph

Time: 7 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.)
