Undoubtedly, a big highlight of this internship is meeting with the leaders of our province.
This Wednesday we had the true pleasure of meeting with Ontario’s Premier, the Honourable Kathleen Wynne. What we noticed right away was Premier Wynne’s friendly and down-to-earth demeanor. Giving an hour out of her hectic schedule for our questions, she allowed us to direct the conversation in any way we’d like. Needless to say we covered a variety of interesting topics, such as electoral reform, political campaigning, youth participation in politics, green energy, women in politics, and the economic future of our province. Premier Wynne also shared how her previous roles as a public school trustee, parent activist, and back bench MPP have all helped prepare her for her current role as Premier.
We are grateful to have been given this truly unique opportunity, and we look forward to seeing Premier Wynne and the other MPPs in action when the House returns next week!
