Mr. Speaker, I wish to recognize Wednesday, November 8, 1995 as Take Our Kids to Work Day.
Today over 153,000 Ontario students will accompany a friend, parent or volunteer sponsor to their workplace in an effort to learn about the demands and opportunities of the working world. The program is an initiative of The Learning Partnership which provides students with an interactive hands on work experience in a field of interest to them while emphasizing community responsibility for the future of our young people.
I would like to welcome Anne McGuire, a grade nine student from Bishop Allen Academy in my riding of Etobicoke-Lakeshore. Anne is spending the day here in my office on Parliament Hill to further her interest in politics. Perhaps at some time in the future she will join us here as a colleague in the House of Commons.
