Ellen Roseman Speaks about Consumer Activism at PIAC Annual Dinner

FAIR Canada Director Ellen Roseman was the keynote speaker at the November 5th Annual Dinner of the Public Interest Advocacy Centre. During her remarks, Ms. Roseman reviewed her role in consumer activism over the past decades, noting that there is now a “tiny consumer movement, underfinanced and struggling to make itself heard in the halls of power”. The presentation reviewed recent developments in the US, including the creation of a Financial Consumer Protection Agency, and the positive roles that media and the internet are playing in helping consumers share information and raise awareness across Canada.
