24 Sussex Drive: From Residence to Reticence

February 21, 2024 at 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM

Location:Carleton's Dominion Chalmers-Centre
Key Contact:School of Canadian Studies

On the occasion of the annual Heritage Ottawa Bob & Mary Anne Phillips Memorial Lecture, The School of Canadian Studies at Carleton University is pleased to partner with Heritage Ottawa and Historic Ottawa Development Inc for an evening of free-wheeling discussion about Canada’s favourite public housing debacle. 24 Sussex has been allowed to deteriorate to the point where there is serious discussion of demolition.

But that may be pre-mature…. So let’s talk about it.

Registration required.
