Media Advisory: Trio of Political Pundits Debate Issues Facing the New Conservative Government as Part of Fraser Institute's New Fall Cocktail Series at Sante

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 17, 2008) - Canadians' latest trip to the polls has produced yet another minority government - the third in four years. Can the Conservatives deliver on election campaign promises, and what impact, if any, will the new-look Parliament have on the government's performance?

Join us for Ottawa's inaugural Behind the Spin event as Joel-Denis Bellavance, Ottawa Bureau Chief for La Presse, Gerry Nicholls, the outspoken senior fellow of the Democracy Institute, and Stephen Taylor, Canada's leading conservative blogger, debate the challenges facing the new government on Tuesday, October 21, 2008 at Sante Restaurant & Gallery.

Behind the Spin host Tasha Kheiriddin will engage our featured speakers and audience members in no-holds-barred conversation. The Fraser Institute's signature cocktail series offers a unique opportunity to discuss an array of issues with opinion-makers whose leadership on key topics informs the news and public debate.

Members of the media are invited to attend and are asked to contact the Montreal office for more information.
