[OPIRG-EVENTS] Why War? CBC Radio & TV Town-Hall Meeting, Tues., Feb. 4, 7:30 pm


Tues., Feb. 4 at 7:30 p.m. 

CBC Radio and Television have invited a panel of experts and special 
guests to lead us in a discussion about dealing with "rogue states". 
See panelist biographies. Join hosts Brent Bambury and Rita Celli for 
a public forum on the threat of war with Iraq. Join Evan Dyer for an 
online forum.

Some say war against Iraq is inevitable, some say there are other options.
What role do Canadians want to take as the U.S. appears to march 
towards war? Do we sign up or do we stand apart?

Admission is free, but space is limited.
