Are you concerned about Canada's shifting directions? Murray Dobbin is, and he uses his skills as an author and journalist to convince Canadians of a growing democratic deficit.
Next Saturday, March 22 at 2 p.m. at the Sechelt Indian Band Hall, Dobbin invites you to consider the impact of omnibus bills, scientist muzzling, tax issues, expanding corporatism and more.
Dobbin lives in Powell River and has a 40-year history of journalism, broadcasting and social activism. He has written five studies for and served on the board of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives and has been a columnist for the Financial Post and Winnipeg Free Press. He was the founding president of Canadians for Tax Fairness and served on the board of the Council of Canadians. Currently he writes for on-line publications The Tyee, the Hill Times, Counterpunch and rabble.ca.
He has written five books, three of them critical profiles of Canadian politicians.
"I'm pre-occupied with the assault on democracy in Canada and with the level of citizen engagement in communities," he said. "Democratic rights are being neutralized in this country, and wary citizens must now be on guard."
You are invited by the Sunshine Coast Alliance4 Democracy to attend this event that promises to be a lively and engaged conversation about the future of Canada.
