Thoughts on culture, education, and having been a Canadian in the US

It’s not every day UVM gets mentioned in a Canadian MP’s blog!

I just finished a posting on my English 005 blog about an entry I came across on the blog of James Moore, one of the Members of Parliament we met with in October on our class trip to Ottawa. Moore was one of four MPs who took over an hour to meet with us and answer students questions. Obviously, it made an impression on Moore who is even younger than I am and one of the bright lights I saw from the Conservative Party while we were there.

My students were blown away, really, that four members of parliament would take time out of their schedules to meet with us. The students came away with a great impression of how the Canadian legislative system works.
