Centre hosts astronaut
Canada’s first astronaut will touch down in Vernon.
Marc Garneau, who is a Liberal MP, will be at the Okanagan Science Centre April 17 at 2 p.m.
“We are thrilled to host Mr. Garneau here in Vernon,” said Dustin Griffin, Okanagan-Shuswap Liberal president.
“He has been a tireless advocate on so many important issues and we are very much looking forward to hear him speak on one of the topics dear to his heart.”
Garneau will discuss science as the foundation of his own career and its increasing importance in shaping Canada’s future.
He began with the Canadian Navy and then became an astronaut and president of the Canadian Space Agency.
In 2008, he was elected as the Liberal MP for Westmount-Ville-Marie in Quebec and was re-elected in 2011. He is currently the Liberal critic for foreign affairs, international trade, and the Francophonie.
