BCSEA Annual General Meeting 2014 with Special Guest Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan

Provincial Event
Nov 29 2014 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm

Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan, well known for spearheading his city's opposition to the Kinder-Morgan/Trans-Mountain pipeline expansion, will address BCSEA members and friends on the subject of energy, communities, and the public interest. While provincial governments including BC's hold sway over thier energy projects and regulations, the federal government, generally through the National Energy Board, makes decisions "in the public interest" that often irrevocably alter our community futures, landscapes and sensibilities. We have asked Mayor Corrigan to reflect on what a new reconciliation of the "public interest" with respect to energy could mean for the myriad communities that together make up Canada.

The BC Sustainable Energy Association invites members and the public to this year's Annual General Meeting and a special event to follow. Join us earlier for the AGM activities, including updates from the President and Executive Director, and for elections to the Board of Directors. Following the AGM, join us for a reception (snacks provided) with our special guest speaker Mayor Derek Corrigan of Burnaby, followed by an opportunity for guests to mingle and network.
