David Suzuki speaks this Thursday, Nov. 3 at UBC

This week, South Hilll Inside Stories, An Evening with David Suzuki, and a dialogue on Building the Network are our top picks. These events deal with community and the impact we have on our environment, as well as how we can make a change for the better. Sounds good to me. Have yourself a good weekend.
