The OLIP interns were fortunate enough to sit down with the Hon. Tony Clement, MP for Parry Sound-Muskoka and the President of the Treasury Board. Prior to serving as an MP, Mr. Clement served as an MPP and as a cabinet minister in the Ontario Legislature. Mr. Clement provided the interns with a very informative discussion on the differences he has noted throughout his career between provincial and federal politics. He also touched on topics ranging from the Ring of Fire, social media & politics, and the role of Question Period. Mr. Clement also provided us with some words of wisdom for those of us considering running for office, and reflected back on the highlights of his career.
We really appreciated Mr. Clement taking the time out of his busy schedule to meet with the interns!
