He’ll be visiting Brockville Wednesday February 13th.
Justin Trudeau will address local high school students during his visit to Brockville next Wednesday, February 13, 2013, as part of a nationwide tour as he vies for the Liberal leadership role.
Trudeau will be at St. Lawrence College at 1:00pm on Wednesday to speak to students about the importance of being politically active and informed in order to help shape Canada’s future.
“I’m really excited that Mr. Trudeau has been able to find time in what I’m sure is a jam-packed schedule, to come tour area to speak directly to our youth,” said Leigh Bursey, chair of the Brockville Youth Advisory Committee. “Justin is a captivating speaker, a personable and intelligent figure in Canadian politics, and someone who brings a youthful experience to his critic portfolio. I’m encouraged by this visit, and excited to inspire and engage our area youth on civic affairs.”
As the critic for youth and post-secondary education and a former schoolteacher himself, Trudeau is committed to connecting with young people to get them excited and interested in Canadian politics.
A number of area high schools have already committed to attending the event; however, all members of the community are encouraged to attend. After Trudeau’s speech, there will be an opportunity to meet with him.
This will be Justin Trudeau’s second visit to the Leeds-Grenville riding in less than three months and we expect a large attendance as we welcome him back to our riding.
There is no cost for this event.
CFN had a one on one with Justin this past week, as well where he talks about Eastern Ontario, Stephen Harper, his heroes, his favorite boxing movie Raging Bull, legalization of Marijuana, and more! Please note that this clip is audio only.
About Stephen Harper:
He doesn’t rust Canadians to understand what it is he’s doing. He does everything with a veil of secrecy, with a lack of accountability.
He’ll also be in Cornwall the day before. Visit his website Justin.ca for more info!
