A University of Calgary student is one of ten finalists in the Magna of Canada "As Prime Minister" essay contest.
On Nov., 25, U of C business student and self-proclaimed starving student Pierre Poilievre will go to Ottawa to attend the final awards gala. As a finalist he receives $10,000 and a summer internship at Magna, based in Toronto, worth $12,000.
"It was like winning the lottery," commented Poilievre. "I'm ecstatic, as you can imagine any starving student would be."
