Clubs & Groups day Wrap up
There were three tables set up by student political clubs. The Trent Young Liberals, Trent Conservatives, and Trent NDP were all on campus at Clubs and Groups day with fun material for students to look at and participate in. Students had the opportunity to volunteer or sign up for a lawn sign to show support for their favourite candidate.
Around 12pm, local candidates arrived to visit with students. Dave Nickle, Mike Skinner, and Maryam Monsef were all at Clubs and Groups day and spoke with Trent University students about the importance of voting, how to register to vote, and why they felt it is important to engage. But they also answered questions students had about their own position and national party positions on a variety of issues (including jobs, student tuition, and the Peterborough economy).
This won't be the last time Candidates are on campus. There will be two more opportunities for students to meet with local candidates. On October 8th is our Meet the Party Party, which is a informal drop in event full of fun games and interactions; and on October 14th we're hosting our student issues debate.
