“Opening Doors to Politics” with Kennedy and Friends


Gerard Kennedy's Team has put together two very special nights in June that are a must attend.

Gerard Kennedy invites YOU to a unique, one of a kind, experience with some of our brightest lights in public life today on June 9 and 14.

"This is the first time a group of elected politicians have come together like this to really open doors to politics." - Peter Sezek, Chair, Opening Doors with Kennedy and Friends

Today’s politics requires politicians with the smarts and the desire to listen and work with citizens online and offline. Gerard and his friends are these politicians.

Learn about politics from the inside AND have dinner with Michael Ignatieff, Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada and Dalton McGuinty, Premier of Ontario.

Bob Rae, Current Foreign Affairs Critic and MP
George Smitherman, Deputy Premier of Ontario
Bonnie Crombie, Member of Parliament
Mark Holland, Critic for Public Safety and National Security and MP
Kirsty Duncan, Member of Parliament
Omar Alghabra, former Member of Parliament

TOPICS:
Who Should Be in Politics and Why
Getting Involved and Getting Nominated
Getting Elected
Life in Politics – The Trade-offs

PROGRAM:
Seminars - 1:30 to 3:00pm and 3:30 to 5:30pm
Reception – 3:00- 3:30pm
Cocktails, Dinner and Speeches begin at 6:00pm

“OPENING DOORS” BRINGS THE POLITICAL WORLD TO YOU!
Are you interested in giving back something more to your country now or at sometime in the future? Are you someone that should consider running for office, helping someone else to, or just getting more involved than you already are? The dinners and seminars are designed to let you listen, question, learn and contribute.

I hate to say it - but it's a great idea.

..not that I'm likely to want to have dinner with Dalton McGuinty and Michael Ignatieff..lol.. but lessons on getting involved is a good plan. Other parties could emulate (hint).

LOVE this guy! These sound like fascinating events, but Kennedy will also be attending the Halton FLA's upcoming cocktail fundraiser on June 17th, so I'll be doing that instead.
