a primer on local politics | engagebarrie

Our amazing student volunteer Kyera Weldon

(who came to us via a partnership with the Global Perspectives program at Innisdale Secondary School)

has put together a series of videos for us that break down the various levels of government,

and how citizens can get involved with local politics.

We are so grateful to Kyera for her hard work, thorough research and ability to make this information easy to understand.

Thanks also to Councillors Nixon, Kungl and Courser for taking the time to assist with this project,

and to Kyera's teacher, Matt Torlée, for his guidance.
