    7:00 PM - 9:00 PM Screening of "The Kitchen of Las Patronas"

    The film "The Kitchen of Las Patronas" presents the remarkable journeys made on the “The Beast”, a train through Mexico, on which some of the region’s most vulnerable migrants perch perilously for days. The tracks pass by the town of La Patrona in Southern Mexico, where a group of women have taken it upon themselves to provide fresh meals to those on the move. Initially acting purely out of compassion for the migrants, Las Patronas come to discover more about themselves, their rights, and their role as women.

    Please join the IMRC at 7:00 pm​ on Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2018, in the CIGI Auditorium at the Balsillie School of International Affairs, for a screening of the film as part of the Global Migration Film Festival.

  • 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM What Outdoor Skating Rinks Teach Us About Climate Change

    Speaker: Robert McLeman, Associate Professor, Department of Geography and Environmental Studies 

    Few experiences are more quintessentially Canadian than skating on an outdoor rink on a frosty winter day. But will climate change one day make outdoor skating a thing of the past? Laurier geographer Robert McLeman shares findings from RinkWatch, a citizen science project that collects daily skating conditions from backyard rink makers across North America and uses that data to better understand how our winters are changing.

    This event is part of the Laurier Milton Lecture Series, a partnership between the Town of Milton, Laurier and the Milton Public Library. Admission is free, and no registration is required.
