Roger Watts Debate
March 29, 2023 at 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
In a world of division, debate matters.
On March 29, the Okanagan community is invited to attend the annual Roger Watts Debate at the Mary Irwin Theatre.
Students will debate the motion Be it resolved that Canada’s affordability crisis justifies a temporary wealth tax before a panel of community judges who will decide the winners. Prizes of $1,000 will be awarded to the first-place finishers, while prizes of $500 will be awarded to the runners-up.
The Roger Watts Debate is a partnership of the Department of Economics, Philosophy and Political Science and a community advisory committee. The debate provides a public forum to debate important issues of the day.
This event is free to attend and open to all, but pre-registration is required.
