The University of New Brunswick is hosting a conversation about how we, the citizens of New Brunswick, can help to turn the province around.  It will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 12, at the Fredericton Convention Centre. Entitled “The Challenges We Face in Governing New Brunswick”, the conversation will be moderated by Elizabeth Weir, president and CEO of the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Agency of New Brunswick, and former leader of the New Brunswick NDP and MLA for Saint John Harbour. The highly respected author and oft-quoted speaker Donald Savoie, who holds the Canada Research Chair in Public Administration and Governance at the Université de Moncton, will lead off the program with a videotaped keynote interview.  Participants responding to his commentary will be Chris Baker, president of Continuum Research and former deputy minister; Don Desserud, well-known political commentator and director of the Urban and Community Studies Institute at UNB;  Leah Levac, Trudeau Scholar, UNB doctoral candidate and social activist; and Lise Ouellette, directrice générale of the Association francophone des municipalités du Nouveau-Brunswick.
