MEI in the Media


The Ian Soutar Lecture Series presented by Pembroke Private Wealth Management

May 2, 2019 — 6:00 PM

Is Free Trade Worth It?

The MEI is happy to invite you to the 3rd edition of the IAN SOUTAR Lecture Series.

Ian Soutar Lecture Series 2019

Should free trade agreements focus exclusively on trade, or should they on the contrary include clauses on issues like the protection of workers, the environment, or the rights of minorities?

Should Donald Trump’s approach to international trade be a source of inspiration for governments in other countries, in order to protect workers and businesses?

These are some of the themes that will be debated during this evening, which promises to be both entertaining and informative.

The debate will feature Dr. Tom Palmer, Executive Vice President for International Programs at the Atlas Network, and Dr. Rick Smith, Executive Director of the Broadbent Institute. The debate will be moderated by Mr. Dan Delmar, Managing Partner, Public Relations, TNKR, and former CJAD radio host.
