Hawksley Workman (stage name of Ryan Corrigan) will be in Guelph this Thursday to speak with students about the upcoming federal election that happens on October 14th, 2008.

This Canadian rock singer-songwriter is also a "multi-instrumentalist" - he can play guitar, drums, bass, keyboards and often switches between them when playing live. During his career he has released 10 full-length albums. For more info on this quirky musician, check out his website at www.hawksleyworkman.com

His visit will focus on the importance of voting, particularly for students. The event is being billed as a Townhall Discussion, and will involve discussions about federal funding for the arts, post-secondary education and student engagement. There will also be additional appearances from Guelph community members such as James Gordon.

The event begins at 4pm in the University Centre Courtyard and will last about 2 hours. If you are unable to make it out during those times, you can catch the Townhall on the radio. It will broadcast live on CFRU 93.3 FM - Guelph's campus and community radio station.

Both the Central Student Association and Student Life are co-hosting this event, and students are encouraged to take part in the discussion and "know the crucial issues for students in the this election."
