Meeting John Turner

One of the real treats to being an OLIP intern is the kinds of meetings you can ask for and usually get! This month we had the privilege of meeting the Right Honourable John Turner, 17th Prime Minister of Canada in 1984. Mr. Turner came to Queen’s Park to meet the interns. We weren’t really sure what to expect; with such an extensive political career, right in the thick of some of Canada’s most exciting political events, we had a lot of questions to ask! Mr. Turner took the time to answer each and everyone of our questions and threw in a few interesting anecdotes from his political past. With a to-the-point, honest and blunt approach to politics, Mr. Turner gave us the exact same in our interview. It was a great opportunity to meet a former Prime Minister and to hear his insight on politics past, present and future!
