MP and MPP Open House Recap

February 27, 2018

Over the past few weeks, we have held open houses with both MP Gord Brown and MPP Steve Clark. We wanted to share with our local representatives what matters most to young professionals. Both events had a mixed group of attendees, with various professional backgrounds. The conversations were interesting, insightful, and thought-provoking. Here’s a summary of each of the conversations.


Open House with MPP Steve Clark

  • The current Ontario PC leadership race

  • Homeownership and first time home buyer’s credits

  • Childcare and the economic pressures on parents

  • Continuing education and professional development opportunities, especially regarding language learning

  • Arts and culture and the need for stable and fair funding for both, especially in rural communities


Open House with MP Gord Brown

  • The new security committee Mr. Brown is sitting on

  • Engaging young people and young professionals in politics

  • NAFTA and the effects on agriculture and geo-politics

  • The coming marijuana legislation

  • Continuing skill development for young professionals

  • Issues of consent and women’s choice


At the conclusion of each discussion, both Mr. Clark and Mr. Brown assured those present that consultations and open discussion will continue in the future. Thanks to both parliamentarians and the young professionals who attended!
