Articulate, Impressive and Young Liberals

Today, the South-Central Policy Parliament was hosted by the Mohawk Young Liberals in Hamilton. What an impressive group of engaged young minds. I arrived while the group was discussing a policy resolution regarding education and I was struck with their willingness to share their thoughts, ideas, and opinions.

The group welcomed Hon. Navdeep Bains, MP for Mississauga-Brampton South as keynote speaker. In March of this year, Mr. Bains was appointed youth caucus liaison to the Young Liberals of Canada. Good questions were asked by the group and Tyler Banham, candidate for Hamilton Mountain and I were asked to assist Mr. Bains in answering the questions.
Also in attendance were: Ted McMeekin, MPP for Ancaster-Dundas-Flanborough-Aldershot, Russ Powers, Former MP and Hamilton City Councillor for Ward 13, and Ivan Luksik, Nominee for Hamilton-Stoney Creek.

I always leave meetings with the young liberals inspired, knowing there is a next generation coming forward that is full of promise.
