TORONTO, March 11, 2015 /CNW/ – The Institute for Canadian Citizenship (ICC) has selected Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi as its 13th LaFontaine-Baldwin Symposium speaker, co-presented with the Stratford Festival. Nenshi will share his thoughts on citizenship and the importance of inclusion September 19, 2015, in Stratford; tickets are now on sale.

Wildly popular, Nenshi is known globally for his passion for making cities, in particular Calgary, work better. The ICC has timed the release of this announcement with what many now call Canada’s own Independence Day. On March 11, 1848, a reform government headed by Louis-Hippolyte LaFontaine and Robert Baldwin was sworn in, marking the birth of democracy in Canada and the advent of Responsible Government. The Symposium pays homage to the accomplishments of LaFontaine and Baldwin. Their reforms created the roots of modern Canada by moving government toward the concepts of complexity and diversity.
