OFFICIAL REPORT (HANSARD)
Thursday, October 27, 2011
Speaker: The Honourable Andrew Scheer
... Statements by Members
Canada-Poland Youth Internship Society
Mr. Blaine Calkins (Wetaskiwin, CPC):

 


Mr. Speaker, in 2009 I personally met with the Canada-Poland Friendship Group in the Polish parliament when I was in Warsaw. The   feedbackfrom those meetings indicated that there was a definite willingness to create a bilateral intern exchange    program between  our parliaments.


Today I rise to bring attention to the creation of the Canada-Poland Youth Internship Society, created for the purpose of  establishing a youth parliamentary internship exchange program between Canada and Poland. This internship will offer young Poles a  unique, first hand public service experience in the office of a Canadian lawmaker in order to learn about the Canadian parliamentary  system of governance, about Canada and Canadians.

Similarly, Canadian youth will get to experience a once in a lifetime opportunity to work in the Polish parliament.

I would like to thank the membership of the Canada-Poland working group, now the society, for volunteering its time and energy to get this program off the ground. I extend special thanks to our chair, Tony Muszynski, our vice chair, Teresa Berezowski, and members Jerzy Barycki, José Semrau, Ludwik Klimkowski and Danuta Tardif.

I know I can count on all parliamentarians to help work toward building closer political, economic and cultural ties between Canada and Poland.
