Degrees:BJ ’86 (Combined honours Political Science)

Helping shape public policy,

With her recent reappointment as Ontario’s deputy minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, Laurie LeBlanc will serve under the Tories as she did under the Liberals.

She is a featured Faculty of Public Affairs journalism graduate.
