SACKVILLE, N.B. – Former Liberal leader Stephane Dion will speak at Mount Allison University on March 14 as part of the President’s Speakers Series.
Dion will speak at Brunton Auditorium at 7 p.m.
The MP for Saint Laurent-Cartierville, a seat he has held since 1996, Dion served as the federal minister of intergovernmental affairs, the environment and official languages under both Jean Chretien and Paul Martin.
He was party leader for two years, losing the 2008 federal election to Conservative Stephen Harper. He served as opposition leader until the party selected Michael Ignatieff to replace him.
Dion is currently the chairman of the Liberal caucus legislative committee and acts as the party’s representative on the sub-committee on private members’ business.
The speakers’ series is co-sponsored by the Centre for Canadian Studies and the annual Edgar and Dorothy Davidson Lecture in Canadian Studies.
