As I arrived at Queen’s Park on Wednesday morning it dawned on me how lucky I was to be a part of the 2010-11 OLIP team. This excitement seemed to be shared by the other interns, and our enthusiasm was soon justified as Dr Jacek outlined the plans for the year ahead. The tour of the Legislature the following morning underlined the grandeur and history of our new workplace. I look forward to the first time we are able to watch proceedings in the chamber! A personal highlight so far has been our meeting with Speaker Warner. He was very friendly, interesting and approachable and I look forward to meeting him again. Another thing which has struck me in the first few days has been how friendly the staff of the legislature are. This should make for an even more enjoyable experience in the coming months. All in all, a great first few days. I am looking forward to meeting with sponsors and other leading figures in the coming weeks and hearing about the issues their organization’s face in Ontario.
