Today was an interesting day to be at Queen’s Park. I was really excited and nervous to start my placement with Progressive Conservative MPP Steve Clark, from the riding of Leeds-Grenville. My day started with running into Beth, since our placements are next door neighbours. Steve Clark, an avid tweeter, tweeted about being excited to have me in the office.
After introductions, getting the computer set up and what not, I went to watch Question Period. I was able to attend a party briefing, set up a stakeholder meeting, and other activities.
It was interesting to be at Queen’s Park when the prorogation/resignation announcement was made. It is interesting to be a witness to history being made and where politics is happening in the country. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to understand the issues facing the rural riding of Leeds-Grenville. Thanks to Steve for a great first day and I can’t wait to get going on more!
