Today, at 8 am sharp marked the commencement of the 89th Youth Parliament of Manitoba Winter Session! Today, approximately 55 youth from across Manitoba will gather in the provincial capital for what is assured to be a week of intense debate and life-long camaraderie.
American cultural anthropologist, Margaret Mead once said,
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
We decided to create The Youth Parliamentarian to bring the extended Youth Parliament of Manitoba (YPM) community together in a forum that encourages ongoing engagement and interaction. By using social media, we can extend our network across cyberspace; allowing for more regular updates about the goings-on of YPM.
