4H Members To Attend National Citizenship Seminar

first_imgTen Nova Scotia youth will join 4-H members from across Canada at the 38th annual National 4-H Citizenship Seminar in Ottawa, Friday, March 27 to Thursday, April 2. Delegates will learn about the Canadian political process, and their rights, roles and responsibilities as Canadian citizens. “Many 4-H members will become future leaders in their communities and this conference offers the opportunity to look at issues that could impact them locally and nationally,” said Mark Parent, Minister of Agriculture. “They will also learn about the rights and freedoms that come with Canadian citizenship.” Delegates will listen to speakers and participate in discussions, conduct a mock parliamentary debate, attend question period and a swearing-in ceremony for new Canadians. They will also tour the Supreme Court of Canada, the National War Museum, the Museum of Civilization and visit Fulton’s Maple Sugar Camp. “The members selected for this seminar have shown their dedication and commitment to the 4-H program in their club, regionally and provincially,” said Arthur Pick, acting manager, 4-H and rural organizations. “Through this, they will be able to learn about how the Canadian government operates and the issues affecting the nation.”last_img
