Wednesday December 2 saw the interns at the Ontario Professional Firefighter’s Association reception. We were proud to attend the reception as the OPFFA is a sponsor of the program. We very much enjoyed our meeting with Mark McKinnon and Fred LeBlanc earlier in the fall; our attendance at the reception was every bit as enjoyable. Much to our delight, we found the firefighters were a convivial and chatty bunch—much like the interns! As an added surprise, during my conversation with Robert Lloyd President of Peterborough Professional Firefighters Local 169 of the IAFF he suggested that we have our photo taken together. So, all the interns joined the photo op: a picture of a new OPFFA president, along with the ‘new additions’ to Queen’s Park (the OLIP interns!). We thank the OPFFA again for their generosity, and look forward to meeting our new friends again in the future.
