In Canada and around the world, extreme weather
phenomena are becoming more frequent and more damaging.
As the costs to people, protected areas, and infrastructure
rise, governments are increasingly being called upon to
mount coordinated responses to droughts, wildfires, storms
Physical scientists like Dr. Ronald Stewart, Fellow of the
Royal Society of Canada, Fellow of the Canadian Meteorological
and Oceanographic Society, and Professor in the Department
of Environment and Geography, University of Manitoba, are
monitoring and analyzing weather patterns, while social
scientists like Dr. Daniel Scott, University Research Chair
in Climate and Society, Director of the Interdisciplinary
Centre on Climate Change (IC3), and Professor in the Department
of Geography and Environmental Management, University of
Waterloo, are exploring how to reduce the impact on people,
communities and the economy.
Join us for a fascinating discussion between these two researchers,
as we explore how government and communities can better
plan for extreme weather.
This breakfast is sponsored by Engineers
The presentation will be in English, with simultaneous interpretation

For the last two decades Parliamentarians, their staff,
and others have had an opportunity to engage with leading
researchers through two breakfast series. The Partnership
Group for Science and Engineering (PAGSE) has brought you
Bacon and Eggheads and the Federation for the Humanities
and Social Sciences has organized Big Thinking breakfasts.
Extreme weather is a hot topic that requires research from
a wide variety of disciplines, so we’ve banded together
to bring you Bacon & Big Thinking, a special breakfast
event featuring different perspectives on this important
Bacon & Big Thinking
