Panel on conflict minerals at University of Waterloo
Dr. Steven Young of UW’s School of Environment, Enterprise and Development spoke on Thursday November 7 on a panel moderated by Peace and Conflict Studies Professor Nathan Funk, with Sustainability Management M.E.S. candidate Chris Burke and NDP MP Paul Dewar.
MP Dewar has proposed a piece of legislation called “The Conflict Minerals Act,” Bill C-486, to require corporations to buy only conflict-free materials.
