MP Hayes engages Sault youth in discussion about federal politics

SAULT STE. MARIE - MP Bryan Hayes today announced that he will be hosting a Community Youth Forum on January 2nd.  MP Hayes will encourage Sault Ste. Marie youth to engage in discussion about federal politics.

“I look forward to this event,” said MP Hayes. “As the future of Canada, today`s youth have a lot of insight and offer a unique perspective to political decision makers. I am confident that I will learn a lot from participants.”

The event, being held at Algoma’s Water Tower Inn and Suites on January 2, will involve discussion of topics such as federal policy and decision making, and will afford each attendee a chance to bring forward issues of importance to them. 

MP Hayes will act as a discussion facilitator, and intends to bring the input gained from this event back to Ottawa when the House of Commons resumes at the end of January.

There is no cost for admission and all attendees will receive free food and beverages.

Youth who are interested may RSVP by December 27 to 705-941-2900 or

That's a great Idea Mr.Hayes. If you truly intend to LISTEN.
Historically not a Conservative Strong point.

A thinly veiled attempt to bring more susceptible minds into the fold. Just like religion - get 'em while they're young, before they can make up their own minds.

Fortunately, it probably won't work. Most young people, if they care to vote at all, tend to vote left. It's not until later, when life in this dog-eat-dog world has beaten the optimism out of them that they vote con. That, or the trappings of "success" that engender the greedy "screw you; I've got mine!" mentality typical of conservative philosophy.
