The 93rd annual Youth Parliament of Manitoba Winter Session came to a close December 30, 2014. It was a fantastic session that left all members feeling like they had found a new family, as many executive members mentioned in their closing speeches.
Of particular note was the quality of discourse in the house this year. Debates were extremely lively and upon hearing “members wishing to speak” from our Speaker, Andrew Jones, backbenchers and cabinet alike jumped out of their seats.
Credit must also be given to the skill of the bill presenting Ministers this year, as all six pieces of legislation were passed.
