Summer Institute for Future Legislators: UBC to run Canada’s first political bootcamp by Sarah Boesveld at national post.com on 1 May 2013.
The political bootcamp is a non-partisan program created by UBC’s Center for Study of Democratic Institutions. Includes former Reform leader Preston Manning, former Liberal cabinet minister Anne McLellan and former BC premier Mike Harcourt. The cost is $475.
Topics – representative government, constituency work, communications, parliamentary roles / procedures, legislation and relationships.
Aspiring politicians – apply now (I don’t see a deadline) http://www.democracy.arts.ubc.ca/ . I hope that this program is successful and that it runs for many years.
