A BIG Concert and a BIG Social Justice Symposium

Anne T. Gillis

A BIG Concert and a BIG Social Justice Symposium happened last weekend in Charlottetown celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Cooper Institute and honouring one of their deceased founding members, Father Andrew MacDonald. The concert was a delightful range of local talent, from a beautiful Creation dance by a young Aboriginal man to a toe-tapping selection of Acadian fiddling, dancing and singing by three Acadian women including Sister Marie L. Arsenault’s niece. The Symposium included a presentation by Pasma Chandra, a policy analyst from Ottawa who outlined how BIG (Basic Income Guarantee) affects democracy and work. A panel including a representative from Cooper Institute, PEI council of People with Disabilities and the Advisory Council on the Status of Women shared their perspectives on the benefits of BIG.
