Ok, what is the trip, exactly?
A four day-three night trip to Ottawa for $175?! That’s right! The Annual Laurentian University Model (Mock) Parliament trip includes coach-bus transportation to and from Ottawa, a three night hotel accommodation, and all-day access to the House of Commons on Friday January 9th 2015 as well as a catered lunch and banquet dinner at the Chateau Laurier!
The trip is scheduled to take place from Thurs. January 8th—Sun. January 11th, when we will join our Sudbury counterparts in a satirical mimicking of Canadian Parliament. Laurentian University is one of only two schools in Canada with this unique privilege and all students are encouraged to attend! You do not have to be a Political Science major, or even have any knowledge of Canadian politics. Money is due Friday, November 30th 2014, and no refunds will be issued. For more information, or for a sign up form, stop by the Laurentian Students’ Union office, E112A.
