Spend a Summer in a Parliamentary Bureau
Democracies still need the press and particularly require an unloveable press. They
need journalists who get in the face of power
– Michael Schudson
Smart political journalism helps democracies thrive
It provides an essential check — on governments at every level, on public institutions –
wherever the power to affect the lives of citizens is concentrated.
The Political Matters Journalism Internship puts students into the midst of political journalism in Ottawa, giving them an opportunity to work in the parliamentary bureaus of select Canadian news organizations under the mentorship of senior journalists.
