California architect to deliver presentation on World Trade Center collapses
Local architects, engineers, police, firefighters and paramedics to attend events at University of Manitoba & Fort Garry Hotel

10 May 2007

Richard Gage, AIA, Architect, a Berkeley, California-based designer of fireproofed steel-framed buildings, will be in Winnipeg on Tuesday, May 29 to deliver a pair of lectures explaining the controversial 2001 collapses of the World Trade Center's Twin Towers and the 47-storey WTC 7.

Mr. Gage's first lecture will be on Tuesday 29 May 2007 at 1:00 p.m. at the University of Manitoba's University Centre, Room 210. The public is invited and the event is free, with a recommended $5 donation. Also speaking that day will be noted media critic Barrie Zwicker of Vision TV fame, author of Towers of Deception: The Media Cover-up of 9/11 (New Society Publishers, 2006). There will also be a screening of the documentary 9/11 Mysteries. Winnipeg Chiropractor Dr. Joe Hawkins will serve as Master of Ceremonies, presiding over a question-and-answer period following the film and the lectures.

On the evening of 29 May, at 7 p.m., Mr. Gage will deliver another lecture on the technical aspects of the WTC collapses at the Club Room of the Fort Garry Hotel, 222 Broadway Avenue, to an audience of architects, engineers, professionals, fire personnel, police, and paramedics. Mr. Gage's research follows the March, 2007 release of the Twin Towers' original blueprints by an anonymous whistleblower from the Silverstein Group, leaseholders of the WTC complex in 2001. Tickets to this event are $20 and can be purchased at the door or in advance by calling (204) 285-7162.

A third event, Wednesday 30 May, will feature a Media Panel at the Gas Station Theatre, 445 River Avenue, at 7 p.m. to discuss the mainstream media's "Code of Silence" regarding the overwhelming evidence that the attacks of 11 September 2001 were an "inside job." Speakers will include author and media critic Barrie Zwicker, veteran journalist and broadcaster Lesley Hughes, and former Winnipeg Free Press editorial columnist Dallas Hansen. Following the panel will be a performance by Winnipeg progressive-rock musicians The Antigravity Project, with refreshments and a reception in the theatre lobby.
