Montreal, Sunday, February 12, 2017 – The Ahuntsic-Cartierville’s Constituency Youth Council gathered together for the first time at the Café de Da. Six dedicated youths met with their federal Member of Parliament to discuss issues that impact their lives, such as, social media, Canadian culture, economic growth in the Chabanel area and community development. These ideas were discussed and will be further developed in future meetings.
These discussions initiated by this council have opened the door to an increase willingness on the part of our youth to participate in continuously improving the riding, while at the same time, making it more dynamic.
The Constituency Youth Council (CYC) should increase the young leaders’ knowledge about the government and also provide their Member of Parliament the opportunity to understand and report issues that matter to our youth.
The next meeting is scheduled for April.
Stay tuned for a profile on the members of the council.
