WATERLOO – Laurier Professor of Political Science Barry Kay will speak about the outcome of the provincial election Wednesday, Oct. 12, for a Kitchener Public Library (KPL) speaker series.

The lecture, titled “The Ontario Provincial Election and What it Means,” takes place from noon to 1 p.m. at KPL’s Forest Heights Branch, 251 Fischer-Hallman Rd., Kitchener.

“With the results so close, and with the Liberals returning with a minority government after the Oct. 6 election, many people will be interested in Kay's analysis,” said Helen Kaluzny, coordinator of marketing and communications for Laurier’s Office of Teaching Support Services. “I’m sure it will prove to be a very lively lecture.”

Kay’s lecture is part of KPL’s “Ideas & Issues” speaker series. A joint program of Laurier, KPL and the University of Waterloo, “Ideas & Issues” is a series of informal, noon-hour lectures that focus on current affairs and a variety of topics in the areas of political and social science, history and arts.

Other upcoming lectures by Laurier professors include:

  • “Philosophy – Why Bother?” by retired Philosophy Professor Robert Alexander Wednesday, Oct. 26
  • “Vimy Ridge,” by Professor Mike Bechtold, Centre for Military Strategic & Disarmament Studies, Wednesday, Nov. 9
  • “When WLU Meant Waterloo Lutheran University,” by Professor Andrew Thomson, Department of History and author of Leadership & Purpose: A History of Wilfrid Laurier University, Wednesday, Nov. 23
