Elizabeth May, leader of Canada’s Green Party and MP for Saanich-Gulf Islands, will be speaking at the University of British Columbia next month.

On March 13 from 1 pm to 3 pm May will give a talk entitled Who We Are.

The talk is a reflection of May’s life in Canada, as well as here experience of growing up in a “politically active” family in the US, before moving to a small village on Cape Breton Island.

Organizers said May – who left the US 45 years ago – will also touch on “the decline of US society,” the rise of ignorance and the challenge for Canada.

The Paris Agreement and the impact of Trump will also be explored.

The event is sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions.

There is no cost to participants but registration is required by the end of March 11.
