Learn more about CBC’s upcoming Canada’s Next Great Prime Minister competition

Have you ever thought about what you could do as prime minister of Canada? If this is one of your dreams, then consider attending an information session tomorrow, when Steve Gooch, program officer for the Canada-US Fulbright Program, will be on campus to talk about the upcoming Canada’s Next Great Prime Minister competition hosted by CBC television this fall.

In 2007, Joseph Lavoie, a political science major at York University’s Glendon College, won CBC’s nationwide search for "The Next Great Prime Minister." To read more about his adventures, see the March 19, 2007 YFile story.

Gooch will be making a presentation from 11:30am to 1pm in Room N105, Seymour Schulich Building. He will then head over to the McLaughlin College Senior Common Room, Room 140, McLaughlin College where he will make another presentation from 1:30-2:30pm. Following the McLaughlin presentation, Gooch will be available to answer questions about this opportunity for one lucky student to win $50,000 and a paid internship at Magna International, The Dominion Institute and the Canada-US Fulbright Program.

There will also be an information table set up in the Vari Hall Rotunda before and after the presentations. Visit CBC’s Canada’s Next Great Prime Minister Web site to learn more about the program. For specific event details, visit the Facebook page for Canada’s Next Great Prime Minister.
