Welcome to Colin Welch's
on-line with me to the
Between October 30th and November 6th, 1999, I attended the Teacher's Institute for Canadian Parliamentary Democracy in Ottawa. This institute was created by Gilbert Parent, former Speaker of the House of Commons, to further our knowledge and understanding of Canada's federal parliament. I was among a group of 70 Canadian teachers attending the institute in our nation's capital. We toured many of the government's institutions and met a number of Ottawa "insiders." We also shared ideas on how to teach government - an extraoridinarily important but challenging task.
