Former Prime Minister Jean Chrétien and National Chief Phil Fontaine will offer up thought-provoking discussion as breakfast speakers before each of the morning sessions, while writer/columnist Chantal Hébert will share her influential and compelling voice on major national issues at the Closing Lunch.
