With U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer coming out strongly against the Keystone XL pipeline, the hidden reality of the economic disaster of Canada having put all its economic eggs in an oily basket becomes clearer than tarsands.

Get in the know and get to know those in the know on this crucial Canadian public issue that most government leaders are not revealing: the carbon bubble (Think: "housing bubble x ten times the severity). Hear what Dal and Kings' students are saying about their vision of a low carbon economy. Listen to Green MP, Bruce Hyer, give us the dirt on the fossil fuel industry overvaluation and how to ease its cumulative economic effect. Listen to our community's experts--that could be you if you attend!!--on questions concerning climate change prevention and mitigation, including a detailed description of revenue-neutral carbon fee and dividend (our best aid in easing the transition to a low carbon economy). Weigh in with your questions and opinions. Sip wine and eat cheese while considering your stock options.
