The first day of OLIP began auspiciously with a chance encounter with the Premier, who immediately put us all at ease by telling the story of his rejection by the interns his first year as a member. It has been wonderful to meet the other interns, as well as the other co-ordinators of the program, as I feel that I have so much to learn from them all and am honoured to work with them. Friday’s breakfast meeting hosted by the Economic Club of Canada was a real treat; it was a pleasure to hear Hon. Lisa Raitt, federal minister of natural resources speak about the future of Canada’s nuclear industry and whether this industry can bring economic prosperity to the country. I can’t wait to start next week!
