Why Youth Are Vital to Local Decision-Making

This was sent to me compliments of Councillor Tara Ney, Oak Bay Council Liaison to Oak Bay Parks and Recreation.  It is a wonderful testament to the power of the youth voice and its significance in making a difference to decision-making, especially for local governments.  My hope is that we as Oak Bay Council, will engage youth in a way that truly values their contributions to our community’s future.
