EWC participants meet Minister of Canadian Heritage
What a wonderful way to launch the 2009-2010 programming season! The traditional Monday morning photo shoot on the steps of Parliament Hill had a whole different meaning for the participants enrolled in the Arts and Culture themed week, due to the presence of Minister Moore from Canadian Heritage.
During his brief encounter with the participants, the Minister spoke about the Canadian parliamentary system, as well as some of his own experiences as a Member of Parliament and as Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages.
Linda Brunet, Director General of Encounters with Canada, took advantage of the opportunity to thank Minister Moore on behalf of the Historica Canada for the significant support his ministry has provided, enabling the Encounters with Canada program to reach thousands of young people yearly.
The participants greatly appreciated being part of this memorable occasion and of this unique photo opportunity.
