Margaret Weston presents Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien
with a U-M shirt to thank him for meeting with her and other students.
The students interned in the Canadian House of Commons, working
for five weeks with members of Parliament from all five Canadian
parties: Liberal, Canadian Alliance, New Democrat, Progressive Conservative
and Bloc Quebecois. Helen Graves, now an emeritus visiting associate
professor, organized the Comparative Political Internship Program
in 1984. Since then, more than 300 students from 10 universities
have participated. In addition to Weston, this year's interns were
Sheryl Busell, Lauren Cowan, Natalia Drelichman, Jason Harris, Erin
Kelley, Mary Kerkorian, Lanni Lantto, Kristina Lewis, Chen Ling,
Eric Moberg, Kevin Mulvaney, Amanda Plisner, Keya Rajput, Kristin
Reinke, Ruth Rohrer, Jessica Rosen, Brian Sadek, Kristin Stoner,
Joanna Tse and Kathleen Tyer.
