If you've been following the Liberal leadership race at all you've heard about Marc Garneau. For those of you who don't know anything about him he has an impressive resume including being the first Canadian in space, he was a Naval Captain, he has a PhD in engineering and he was the president of the Canadian Space Agency, among other accomplishments.

He'll be in town on Wednesday February 6th for a series of events. At 12pm that day he'll be at the UofA speaking and answering questions first. Then at 1pm, he'll be at Deweys grabbing beers and talking with students. If you're free during this time, you should defintiely come check it out.
