Macdonald-Laurier Institute Senior Fellow Ken Coates will be taking part in an “Ask Me Anything” on Reddit on Feb. 24 at 1:30 p.m.Ken Coats

Users will be able to submit questions through the CanadaPolitics “subreddit”, which Coates will then respond to in real time.

As the name implies, users will have the chance to login to Reddit and ask Coates anything about his previous work.

Given his extensive research experience with both the Macdonald-Laurier Institute and the Johnson-Shoyoma Graduate School of Public Policy in Saskatchewan, that could mean any number of different items.

Coates is well-known for his work on First Nations in Canada.

Just recently, he authored an MLI paper on why provincial governments should adopt a resource revenue sharing regime with Aboriginals.

Last year he co-authored, with fellow MLI Senior Fellow Dwight Newman, a paper analyzing how the Supreme Court’s Tsilhqot’in and Grassy Narrows decisions will affect natural resource development.

Along with MLI Managing Director Brian Lee Crowley, he wrote a series of publications outlining how the proper development of Canada’s natural resources can help Aboriginals better share in the country’s growing prosperity.

This leadership led to Coates being named to the New Brunswick provincial government’s First Nations advisory team.

Coates is also a thought leader in post-secondary education. This includes the book, co-written with Bill Morrison, “What To Consider If You’re Considering University: New rules for education and employment”.
