Politics in Canada participants welcomed Parliamentary Secretary for Official Languages and Member of Parliament (Saint Boniface) Shelly Glover to the Terry Fox Canadian Youth Centre on March 4, 2009.
MP Shelly Glover was at the Centre on behalf of the Honourable James Moore, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages, to announce an additional $372,820 to cover increased transportation costs.
This new funding will enable Historica Encounters with Canada participants from across Canada to participate in this year's Encounters program, subsidizing their travel to Ottawa. "We are delighted the Government of Canada has provided this additional funding for our youth program," said Linda Brunet, Director General of Encounters with Canada. "This funding is in keeping with our desire to shape Canadian youth into informed and engaged citizens."
