Veritas Lecture Series: Death, Resurrection and Bioethical Dilemmas
Dr. Moira McQueen
Thursday, September 24, 7:30 p.m.
Joanne & Peter Kenny Theatre, SLC 

The Christian approach to death is charged with meaning, since we recognize that death is an essential part of life. We are challenged in many ways to die to ourselves so that we might rise to greater things, just as the seed must fall into the ground and die in order to produce great fruit. Christ's Resurrection reverses our idea of finality, giving us hope and meaning for our lives and deaths as well as helping us confront some of the bioethical dilemmas found in today's 'Culture of Death.'

Free parking is available for this special presentation.

The Future of Work: Poverty Reduction In London

How do we reduce poverty if there is not enough employment? In a world of increasing automation and efficiency can Londoners count on a middle class lifestyle and the work that sustains it in the near future? Is it possible to lift yourself out of poverty in today economic conditions? There have already been serious questions raised by economists about the future of work and so we invite you to hear from two renowned experts to discuss this critical question. The conference, hosted by The London Poverty Research Centre at King's brings together three respected economists, Armine Yalnizyan (Senior Economist at the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives) and Mike Moffat (Assistant Professor in Business, Economics, and Public Policy at Ivey and Chief Economist at the Mowatt Centre) to answer this important question. The conference will be moderated by Larry Cornies (former Editor of the London Free Press).

Friday October 2, 2015 from 9 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. at the Joanne and Peter Kenny Theatre. All are welcome. Please register here. Hurry, space is limited.
