The Roger Watts Debate: Be it resolved that the government should have the ability to make vaccination mandatory
March 31, 2021 at 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
In a time when many are voluntarily rolling up their sleeve, join us for this provocative debate on public health and governmental power.
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.
Top UBC Okanagan undergraduate student debaters will argue their case 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. Student participants will also have the opportunity to compete for the newly created People’s Choice Award, with $500 up for grabs.
