Corner Brook youth are getting engaged in municipal politics
June 2, 2020 – Cape Breton Post
Most people know Mira Buckle through her involvement in the arts and theatre.
But last summer the Corner Brook teen had her eyes opened to a new experience that’s now become a new passion.
Buckle, 16, a Level 2 student at Corner Brook Regional High, participated in Shad 2019 at McGill in Montreal. The program focuses on preparing students to take on social and economic challenges. It was there she was introduced to the concept of youth advisory councils that work with municipal councils. Young people are able to share their thoughts and ideas and become engaged in their communities.
