On September 18, 2014, the people of Scotland will vote in an historic referendum. They will be asked the question: Should Scotland be an independent country? This is a significant event for Scots all over the world, including those of us with Scottish connections and heritage living in Canada.

ScotCanBC (the Scottish Canadian Business Association of BC) would like to invite you to a very special Scottish Independence Debate moderated by Iain Black, President and CEO of the Vancouver Board of Trade. The debate will take place at Simon Fraser University’s Harbour Centre on Thursday, September 11th, 2014 from 5:30pm-7:45pm.

Tickets for members are free (annual membership is $50) and tickets for non-members are $25. Tickets can be purchased here.

Non-members who purchase a ticket will also have the opportunity to sign up for membership on the night for $25.

You can renew your membership or become a member by completing and returning the form located here.

Four prominent Scottish Canadian figures from Vancouver’s business community will debate their reasons for answering either ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ to the referendum question.

Yes Panelists

  • Alma Lee, Founder of the Vancouver International Writers and Readers Festival.
  • Gareth Brown, Director of Canadian Operations for Sgurr Energy, a Scottish renewable energy consultancy.

 

No Panelists

  • David Lunny, Founding Partner of Lunny Atmore LLP and former President of the St. Andrew’s and Caledonian Society of Vancouver.
  • Euan Sinclair, Director of Knowledge Management for Lawson Lundell LLP.

 

We hope to see you at what promises to be a lively debate.

The Directors of ScotCanBC.
