Hot Ticket: Naheed Nenshi – Thursday, October 25

The term “game changer” has become such a tired piece of corporate phraseology that it’s almost meaningless. Almost. Naheed Nenshi’s victory in the 2010 Calgary mayoral race did indeed change the game, corner-kicking him to stardom in Canadian municipal politics. Running with a smart social media campaign strategy, the fresh-faced 38-year-old became the first Muslim mayor of a major Canadian city—and in Alberta of all places. The Harvard-educated dynamo is giving this year’s John Kenneth Galbraith Lecture in Public Policy at MUN. The free lecture takes place at Innovation Hall at MUN’s Agnes Bruneau Centre, it will also be webcast. Check it out at 7:30pm.
