This 91st Session of YPM is now well under way. Debate has been lively as ever, with seldom a dull moment during deliberations on the six acts presented thus far. As we reach the halfway point of Winter Session, we now pause our debate as we do every year, to honour our distinguished alumni and former MLAs at YPMs annual Bear Pit and reception.
The Bear Pit is an opportunity for current members of the session to ask former MLAs – the ‘bears’ – questions on any topic that interests them. This year’s Bears are Ms. Diane McGifford, Mr. Rey Pagtakhan, and Mr. Harold Taylor. In addition it is an opportunity to recognize truly remarkable members who have worked tirelessly for the organization. This year, Alyssa Morrison and Darcy Vermuelen will be appointed to YPMs Senate in recognition for their work on behalf of the organization. We congratulate them on this achievement, and know that our “Momma Bear” and 90th Speaker will be wonderful additions to the Senate.
Alumni and friends are invited to join us. Proceedings begin at 6:30pm with a reception to be held directly following the Bear Pit in the rotunda. We at the 91st Session are very excited to see and meet all of you.
