REF NO.: 149

SUBJECT: New debate emerging on regional governance: Harris Centre launches public forum

DATE: May 27,2008

 The Leslie Harris Centre of Regional Policy and Development has launched an innovative project to encourage public debate on regionally managed healthcare, education, economic development and municipal government. The centre has developed an online moderated forum (www.harriscentreforum.ca) to launch a debate on the size and authority of regional boards and councils.
The forum discussion is based on two background studies (available online: Managing Change through Regionalization: Lessons from Newfoundland and Labrador by political scientist Dr. Stephen Tomblin; and Where do you draw the line?: Regionalization in Newfoundland and Labrador by independent journalist and communications professional Wade Kearley).
