“I am proud whenever a student from my riding is chosen to be a legislative page,” said Simcoe Grey MPP Jim Wilson.  “Like Callum, these are outgoing, high-achieving, community-involved students who have demonstrated responsibility and leadership.”

The page program has existed since Confederation, and is open to grade 7 and 8 students with a minimum academic average of 80 percent. They are recommended by their school principals.

“It is an honour to be a page, and it is so much more than just carrying messages and running errands for Members as they carry out the province’s business,” said Mr. Wilson. 

During their term, pages experience the provincial legislature in action and forge new lifelong friendships with peers from all over Ontario.  They have the opportunity to meet key parliamentary officials and political figures while learning first-hand about the legislative process. When not at work in the legislature the students attend classes under the direction of a certified Ontario teacher.

“I want to thank Callum for serving as a page,” said MPP Wilson.  “And I encourage other young prospective leaders in Simcoe-Grey to consider applying for future opportunities to participate in this unique and rewarding program,” he added.
