A student from Steinbach will have a special story to share as students return to classes Monday after Christmas Break. Morgan Bushie took part in the Youth Parliament at the Saskatchewan Legislature. Bushie is the foster son of Michael and Angela Zwaagstra and says his parents both attended the Saskatchewan Youth Parliament in their younger years. He adds it was a good fit since the family makes an annual Christmas visit to Regina.

"We usually go to Regina every year. It's a family tradition for us. My parents told me about Youth Parliament and I thought it was pretty cool and, so then, my parents signed me up. It was pretty exciting, but also a terrifying experience because I had to talk in a group of people."

Bushie says the Youth Parliament sat for three days from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. where they discussed a number of resolutions. He introduced a resolution that would force older teachers to step down to free up money.

"To save money for the government and also the schools so we could use the money for fundraisers and stuff like that. It was a pretty good discussion, it went for almost half a day. I got lots of questions and it was pretty interesting."

Bushie adds while Youth Parliament was enjoyable, he has no intentions of becoming a politician.

"I felt like a grown-up there. It was pretty interesting and there were a lot of topics. I'm not a big fan of politics, but talking to other people who have opinions is pretty interesting. I wouldn't want to be a politician."

Bushie says his goal is to one day become an RCMP officer.
