Our Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, has said that “young voices must be part of our decision making process” and that’s why we launched a new initiative to bring youth together from across Pierrefonds-Dollard to engage with the federal political process.
In an effort to hear from youth in the community, I invited youth from the ages of 15-24 from different schools, neighborhoods and local associations to apply to the Pierrefonds-Dollard Youth Council. This Council will study the riding, meet for roundtables and gain on-the-ground experience by volunteering locally.
The first Council meeting was held on November 10 2016, and I am proud to introduce the great group of young citizens that are getting engaged to make our community better.
