Global Citizenship Conference: Haiti - Canada's Role in the Failed Development Model
Today, I and Riaz Sayani Mulji presented on Haiti at the McMaster University Global Citizenship Conference. Despite technical difficulties we managed to make it through, highlighting Canada's infamous role in Haiti - in addition to why the current development model for Haiti is failing.
There was a decent turnout on a rainy Saturday morning. People asked questions, and were both engaged and disturbed why what they learned. Hopefully it will spread. I will post the powerpoint presentation on here as soon as I can figure out how to.
