Updating a previous item, the University of Guelph lecture featuring Joe Clark, Canada’s 16th prime minister and former secretary of state for external affairs, is now set for Nov. 26.
Clark is this year’s Winegard Visiting Lecturer on International Development. His lecture “Leading From Beside” will take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m., in Rozanski Hall, Room 101.
The event is free and open to the public.
Clark is expected to discuss the growing importance of middle powers in international development.
The Winegard International Development Lectureship was created in 2005 with an endowment from former U of G president William Winegard and his family.
Winegard served as Guelph MP from 1984 to 1993. He became Canada’s first minister of science and served as parliamentary secretary to the minister of international trade.
