David Orchard will speak at the end of the morning session to address some of the key questions and sum up the discussion.

Questions before the panel are: "Who has been hurt by B.S.E., who has gained? Is the B.S.E. border closure legal under NAFTA? Is the beef industry being sacrificed by Ottawa for fear of offending the U.S. government? Ninety percent of Canada's beef packing industry is U.S. owned -- does it matter? Why won't the U.S. and Canada agree to European and Japanese testing standards and why is Canada behind in the testing necessary to keep its status as a country of minimal risk ? In the U.S., meatpackers have been outlawed from owning cattle, so that they can't manipulate prices -- should Canada follow suit? Should provincial and federal governments hold an emergency public debate on B.S.E.?" and more...

A Forum on Conservatism; "What Does It Mean To Be Conservative?"

The Department of Political Science and The Canada Research Chair in Social Justice presents A Forum on Conservatism; "What Does It Mean To Be Conservative?" featuring David Orchard, with Commentaries by Professors John Whyte and Shadia Drury and Moderator Dr. Allan Cahoon (V.P. Rsearch).

The demise of the Progressive Conservative party and the creation of the new Conservative party raise questions about what it means to be conservative. Does the term 'conservative' mean anything at all? Or has it become meaningless? David Orchard, who has played a significant role in the now defunct Progressive Conservative party, will tell us what it means to him to be conservative. Shadia Drury will argue that conservatism is a dilemma that is integral to the human heart—we are all conservatives at heart even if it is impossible to be conservative. John Whyte will explore the transformation of conservatism that is going on before our eyes.

All welcome. For more information please contact Jodie Henry, Assistant/Secretary Canada Research Chair in Social Justice, tel 306-585-5411
