MP McLeod Welcomes Applications for the Cariboo Youth Advisory Board

Kamloops (March 17, 2017): Cathy McLeod, Member of Parliament for Kamloops – Thompson – Cariboo, is starting a non-partisan youth advisory board that will welcome young people from across the Cariboo to have a voice on federal issues.

“The Cariboo Youth Advisory Board will give participants between the ages of sixteen and twenty-four the opportunity to have direct and open dialogue on important topics of their choice. From Parliament Hill to their neighbourhood, all issues that are important to them are on the table,” said McLeod.

“Youth will be joined with other young leaders from the Cariboo, no matter their political viewpoint, and I anticipate we will have some thought-provoking discussions,” stated McLeod.

Eight young leaders will be selected to sit on the Cariboo Youth Advisory Board for a one-year term, starting in May 2017. Those wanting a copy of the application can contact the MP office at cathy.mcleod@parl.gc.ca and the deadline to apply is April 30, 2017.

“Those who successfully complete this year-long initiative will receive a letter of commendation. I look forward to meeting our future leaders and community advocates!” concluded McLeod.
