The federal election -- Dr. Gendron speaks at Nipissing University

From Dr. Robin Gendron, Department of History, NU:

As you may have heard, I have been asked by the History Club to speak and take questions about the current federal election/past elections in Canada. I'll be doing so Wednesday at 11:30 in room A224 (I think that's correct). The History Club is generously providing lunch for this event as well.

If any of your students might have an interest in attending, please let them know of this talk.

Although the prolonged dramatic agony of the US election tends to overshadow our short, economical process, this election has a lot of potential to change Canada one way or another. Don't miss your chance to get some important background material before you cast your vote.

And from me, thanks, Robin, for doing this.
