Ed Broadbent to call for renewed progressive politics at annual Jack Layton lecture
Ryerson to announce Distinguished Visiting Practitioner at lecture
September 19, 2013
Social democracy can lay claim to having played a key role in shaping modern Canada. But can we afford to preserve our public social programs for future generations of Canadians? Ed Broadbent, Chair of the Broadbent Institute and former federal NDP leader, will make the case for a social democratic renewal in the second annual Jack Layton lecture on Tuesday, Sept. 24th at Ryerson University.
During his address, Broadbent will connect the philosophical and historical successes of social democracy with today’s social and political challenges. He will also urge Canadians to uphold their social democratic values and call upon the government to build a better Canada for its citizens.
In addition, Jean-Paul Boudreau, dean, Faculty of Arts, will announce a new distinguished visiting practitioner, who will serve to advance the legacy of the late Mr. Layton, a professor at Ryerson prior to his distinguished political career.
