Throughout the year, CBC Radio One’s London Morning has convened a panel of local MPs to speak about decisions being made in Ottawa that are particularly pertinent to the London region.

The London Morning team decided to bring the MPs together one last time for 2018, but this time we did something different.

Host Julianne Hazlewood visited H.B. Beal Secondary School and turned the floor over to grade 12 students in Mr. Watson’s history class — a chance for the teens to ask London MPs anything they want.

CBC London was incredibly impressed by the well-informed questions. Here are a few, and the responses from Liberal MP for London West Kate Young, Conservative MP for Elgin-Middlesex-London Karen Vecchio and NDP MP for London-Fanshawe Irene Mathyssen.
