The event organizer, Shad Budge:
We were unable to successfully host the Global Neuroethics Conference, which was scheduled to take place in early August. All three speakers cancelled just weeks before the event, and we failed to find any replacements within the limited time frame. We never received any specific reasoning as to why the speakers had to cancel, despite our numerous requests. It was quite heartbreaking to say the least; as we put our hearts and souls into the production of the conference for six months. We know how many people were disappointed in the cancellation of this event, and we offer our sincerest apologies.
The main goal of the conference was to give the Neuro-Specific Human Rights Bill a significant platform prior to the upcoming Canadian federal election in October. We are now lobbying directly to current Members of Parliament for sponsorship regarding the support of this bill. We will be donating funds to the campaigns of certain MPs in exchange for live meetings where we can provide them in-person presentations. These presentations will elaborate on how vital these human rights are, and the potential unintended consequences that could arise if we do not enact them into legislation. We strongly believe that we can find numerous MPs that would be willing to sponsor this bill, and use it as a part of their campaign platform for the upcoming federal election.
We are still looking for help in perfecting the bill, and eliminating any potential loopholes that may surreptitiously allow the rights to be violated. The type of people we are looking for are: lawyers (who specialize in constitutional law), neuroscientists, neuroethicists, technology developers, and human rights advocates. After a large enough precedent has been set, we firmly believe that this bill will be enacted into the legislation of every country worldwide. We will not rest until we achieve this goal, and the cerebra of every man, woman, and child are protected. Please forward this message to anyone that you think would be interested in assisting with our efforts.
