Save the Date! On June 16, This Magazine & Rabble co-host a G20 panel on "women & children"

Graham F. Scott

G8 Leaders meet in L'Aquila, Italy, July 8, 2009.This Magazine and are pleased to be co-hosting a panel discussion in a few weeks on the G8/G20’s agenda on global maternal health. We’ll be posing the same questions that I raised in my editorial in the current issue: Does Canada have any business leading the charge on these issues? Shouldn’t we look to our own back yard first?

We’ll have more details, including a full confirmed lineup of panelists, in a few days, but we wanted to let you know about this now, since there are so many G20-related events happening in the city over the next month. We think this will be a lively and provocative discussion, so for our Toronto-area readers, please come and participate! What we know right now (and we’re super-excited about this lineup) is that Judy Rebick will moderate, and the panel will include Josephine Grey of Low-Income Families Together, and Toronto Star reporter and commentator Antonia Zerbisias. (I’ll update with panellist #3 when we’ve absolutely confirmed). In the meantime, mark your calendars and see you there!
