Windsor Liberty Seminar 2008

This Saturday, March 15 is the Windsor Liberty Seminar.

This is the third year of this event which is hosted at the University of Windsor. The one-day seminar is free for students, $10 for all others, includes lunch and a whole day of awesome discussion of Liberty.

This year's confirmed speakers are Jan Narveson, Institute for Liberal Studies President and Professor Emeritus from the University of Waterloo talking about revitalizing liberalism (the classical kind, of course), Fred McMahon of the Fraser Institute on why globalization is so awesome and Bruce Walker of the Mackinac Center for Public Policy on the property rights battle.

After the seminar all attendees or otherwise are encouraged to come out to Phog Lounge in Windsor for the officially unofficial after party, once again featuring Lindy of solo fame and lead singer of Major Maker, and this year also featuring Wax Mannequin of Hamilton.
