Our Future: A Public Dialogue

McGill University hosts a panel discussion to analyze a manifesto entitled “Pour un Québec Lucide,” Montreal, Que., October 19, 2006. The manifesto reviews important issues facing Quebec. In this session, discussion focuses on the necessity of developing, attracting, and retaining skilled workers in Montreal.

Allan Schweyer (president and executive director of the Human Capital Institute) and Heather Monroe-Blum (McGill University principal and vice-chancellor) make opening remarks.
