MPP Placement Blog: Sharon x MPP Smith
I am currently placed with MPP Laura Smith who represents the riding of Thornhill and serves as a Parliamentary Assistant for the Ministry of Tourism, Culture, and Sport. MPP Smith is also a member of the Standing Committee on Public Accounts and the Standing Committee on Heritage, Infrastructure, and Cultural Policy.
It has been a pleasure to work alongside MPP Smith and learn from her strong work ethic and magnetic personality. Throughout my placement thus far, I have had the opportunity to write member statements and speeches, as well as staffed her at numerous community events. I have also been involved with the drafting of her Private Member’s Bill which has been nothing short of insightful and exciting. MPP Smith is very engaged with her community and her constituents serve as the underlying motivation for all her work. The largest Jewish contingent in Canada, Thornhill has unique strengths and issues, and I hope to learn more about the riding during constituency weeks.
I would like to thank MPP Smith as well as Sheldon, Daniela, Delia for their support and collegiality!
