Elizabeth May to give 2014 Mallory Lecture at McGill University

Elizabeth May, Member of Parliament for Saanich-Gulf Islands and Leader of the Green Party of Canada, will be giving the 2014 Mallory Lecture at McGill University on Monday, March 24.

The Mallory Lecture is an annual event hosted by the McGill Institute for the Study of Canada (MISC), in honour of the late McGill History Professor J.R. Mallory. Past Mallory speakers include Noah Richler, John Gomery, and Bob Rae.

May’s lecture, entitled The Crisis in Canadian Democracy, will address the decline in youth participation in Canada’s democratic process, and what can be done to prevent a slide into “elected dictatorships.”

“I am truly honoured to have the opportunity to address the McGill community and to be part of this venerable academic tradition,” said May. “The Mallory Lecture series is an important example of the important role that universities must play in fostering debate and engagement with democracy.”

The 2014 Mallory Lecture will take place Monday, March 24 at 5:00 P.M. EDT, at the McGill Faculty Club. The event is free and open to the public, and can also be viewed online.
