Having been a highly successful news anchor, the Hon. Peter Kent, PC, MP went onto make it to the House Of Commons & even serve in the federal cabinet. Truly a professional gentleman in every aspect. Today, at Ryerson University, Peter enunciates in his broadcast voice that journalists & journalism students should run for office as they'll be able to speak & shape public policy issues.
"But I'm surprised that more don't, simply because every day of a journalist's life-every story a journalist does-deals with public policy in some form or another."
Number CLVI (156),
