My name is David Birnbaum. I am a graduate from the University of Waterloo Civil Engineering program. I was heavily involved in student politics while at University, and since graduating have started to get involved in general politics.
I have participated twice in the Engineers Canada Parliament Hill Contact Day, meeting with MPs and engaging on issues important to the engineering profession. As well, I have volunteered with multiple nearby MPs, including participating in a Bell Let’s Talk Facebook Livestream, where I discussed my experience dealing with mental health issues. Those are a couple of the many ways I have personally started to get involved.
I am a big believer in our generation, and our political capabilities being as strong as any others. We are (or will soon be) the largest portion of the population, we should have a say proportionate to that. I hope you enjoy the podcast.
