A group of Manitoba teachers spent the last couple of days at a conference at the legislature, studying the province's politics. This morning, at a little breakfast panel, they asked a few of us reporters how to get students more psyched up about government, especially when it still seems to be dominated by a bunch of old guys.That was some astute foreshadowing on the part of those teachers.A few hours after the panel, I got a press release from Mayor Sam Katz about a new initiative in his bid to "build a city of opportunity."He's creating a Seniors Advisory Council.
