“The MPM was indispensable in expanding my network and broadening my political horizons. Prior to my current role, I had little experience working in Western Canadian jurisdictions. However, I was able to lean on my MPM network to help build relationships with key stakeholders and better grasp local politics. Now, I feel much better equipped to take on my coast-to-coast-to-coast responsibilities.” – Alanna
