Mission’s Young Adult Engagement Committee hosts “Generation Squeeze” Oct. 15.

The free event runs from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at The Stage, 32998 First Ave. in Mission.

Generation Squeeze began as a University of B.C. project researching generational inequality in Canada.

The idea is to bring together Canadian in their 20s, 30s and 40s to lobby for change on issues such as high home prices and crushing debt.

The Mission event will be a night of discussion on issues that matter most to that generation and how to get engaged so their voices can be heard.

Leading the discussion will be Paul Kershaw (in photo), associate professor in the UBC school of population and public health.

Magician Gary Savard will also be on hand to entertain before the discussion, and free childcare is available across the street. Parents can email youcare.wecare@gmail.com to reserve a spot.

The event is hosted by the Young Adult Civic Engagement Committee, the District of Mission, The Stage and Sue’s Copy Place.
