I routinely visit schools in Don Valley West to speak to students about politics and the role of a Member of Parliament. So far this year, I have visited Denlow PS, Northlea PS, Harrison PS, Marc Garneau Collegiate Institute, Dunlace PS and Maurice Cody.
The discussions I share with students include topics such as Canada’s support for refugees in Canada and around the world, the price on pollution and other environmental protection measures as well as how young people can become more involved in politics.
I always find the opinions of these young future leaders to be progressive, compassionate and refreshing. The total acceptance they have of others who are different and their strong support for keeping our environment clean are what we need more of in politics today.
These visits fill me with appreciation for the great public schools in our community and hope about the bright future these students will lead. If you are interested in having me speak at your school, please contact my office!
