MONTREAL, NOVEMBER 7 2011- The English Montreal School Board (EMSB) will proudly welcome back newly elected NDP Member of Parliament Laurin Liu to her former school, Royal West Academy (189 Easton) in Montreal West, on Wednesday November 9 (10 am).
Ms. Liu, 20, represents the riding of Rivière des-Mille-Îles. She now in fact resides in St. Eustache, which is part of her constituency. When she elected last May as part of the NDP wave she was in her second year of a joint-honours program in history and cultural studies at McGill University.
Principal Tony Pita, who was the vice-principal when Ms. Liu was a student, will welcome everyone to the auditorium. One of Ms. Liu’s former teachers, Xavier Desilets, will introduce her.
Fluent in Cantonese, English and French, Liu was a contributor and director at McGill's community radio station. She graduated from Royal West Academy in 2006-2007. Royal West offers an enriched CEGEP preparatory program. Hundreds of students take a qualifying entrance exam each year.
