A last look back at GGY17

Twenty-nine young people – mostly 11th and 12th graders from across the country – gathered in Ottawa for three days earlier this month for training in politics, worldview, and apologetics. Their experiences and impressions of the conference are now documented in an online video. Generally, the consensus was that the conference was valuable for education, networking, and equipping them to interact with the culture and with their elected officials. One of the participants actually had an encounter with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. “We were walking out of Question Period and I didn’t realize he was walking beside me. I looked over and saw all these bodyguards and realized ‘oh, someone’s there.’ And it was Justin Trudeau, and he looked at me and smiled.” For a full account of the students’ impression, you can check out the online video, here.
