This year’s annual Warren Gill Lecture series will be presented by Mary Rowe who will speak on Canada’s Enduring Two Solitudes: Can we bridge the urban-rural divide?

Modern political movements increasingly pit city dwellers against rural residents, and downtowners against suburbanites, suggesting our differences are irreconcilable. Can we construct a new narrative that binds us together, and new approaches to governance and public decision-making that recognize the particularities of place?

Mary Rowe’s current roles include empowering Canada’s largest cities to be economically vibrant, socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable as senior advisor to Evergreen and Future Cities Canada and as co-executive lead for the National Urban Project .
