Nelson Rural Students Chat Live With Prime Minister Trudeau

Posted: December 9, 2020

There was a lot of excitement in Mme. MacDonald's FI Grade 6/7 Science Humaines class at Nelson Rural School yesterday, as students had the opportunity to chat live with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau!

Students prepared questions for the PM and had an engaging discussion, as they covered topics such as the effects of Residential Schools and Reconciliation, the Rights of the Child, and how students are adapting to all of the changes brought on by COVID-19.  The Prime Minister was attentive and impressed with the students' passion and dialogue -  all agreed that it was a great experience!

This very special opportunity was arranged by local MP Pat Finnigan.
