Teachers’ Institute of Parliamentary Democracy (Part 1)

Hello Grade 9 Students! This week and weekend I will be meeting with a variety of MLAs, the Speaker of the House, Daryl Reid, and the Lt. Governor, Philip Lee. I will have the chance to chat them up and ask them some tough questions. What questions do you have for MLA James Allum, Philip Lee and Daryl Reid? Given the recent Manitoba Budget, what issues are pressing in this Province?

Drop me a few ideas here on the blog and I will keep you up to date via film, photos and my musings!
