Taking the long view: ensuring Canada’s success in the 21st century7:45am-9:00am | The Fairmont Palliser - 133 9th Avenue SW, Calgary
In today's hyper-connected world, it is easy to get trapped in a short-term, reactive mindset. But if we don’t have a clear sense of where we want Canada to be 10, 15 or 20 years from now, we are unlikely to get there. In his remarks, John Manley will discuss his vision for Canada in the 21st century, and what Canadians need to do to realize our country’s potential in the global economy.
