  BC Southern Interior Conservative Association will be hosting Charles Lammam, Senior Policy Analyst at the Fraser Institute, as a guest speaker at the Fireside Inn on Nov. 23 from 7 to 9 p.m.  Everyone is welcome and admission is by donation.

Lammam will be speaking on “the fork in the road” that Canada faces.  That is, we can return to sound policies that allowed us to weather the recession better than almost all other countries or go down a path that puts the country at risk to return to the troubling deficits and debt of the 1980s and early 1990s.

Charles Lammam is a Senior Policy Analyst in the Fiscal Studies Department at the Fraser Institute. Since joining the Institute, Mr. Lammam has authored or co-authored several research reports and shorter articles on a range of public policy issues including taxation, government spending and performance, investment, labour markets, entrepreneurship, privatization, transportation infrastructure, and charitable giving. He is a regular contributor to Fraser Forum, the Institute’s policy magazine, and frequently writes commentaries that have appeared in most major Canadian newspapers including the National Post, Ottawa Citizen, Toronto Sun, Montreal Gazette, Calgary Herald, and Vancouver Sun. Mr. Lammam also regularly gives presentations, responds to media inquiries, and appears on radio shows across the country to discuss the Institute’s research. He holds an MA in public policy and BA in economics with a minor in business administration from Simon Fraser University.  For more information contact Meagan Salekin at 250-365-6925 or meagan.salekin@gmail.com.
