The School of Public Policy is pleased to invite media to a discussion of foreign takeover rules in Canada. 

The rejection last year of BHP Billiton’s proposed takeover of Potash Corporation shows that Industry Canada can make unpredictable decisions with little or no transparency. 

Larry Herman, an expert in international trade and investment will discuss the impacts of our foreign takeover rules on investment in Canada at a luncheon with media availability to follow.

When:   Thursday, September 15, 2011 at 11:30 a.m.

Where:  The School of Public Policy

               906 8th Ave. S.W., 5th Floor
