Ontario Legislature Internship Programme.

'Honourable Gentlemen

'Working as a non-partisan Legislative Intern at Queen's Park for the past ten months, one is able to study first-hand the dynamics between today's male and female politicians. These dynamics are amplified during Question Period, and some incidents which are not captured by the many television cameras that adorn the House that one can witness at a bird's eye view from the public gallery are more shocking than others.

'Just try to keep them happy'

'Paper presented at the 2012 Annual meeting of the Canadian Political Science Association, Edmonton, Alberta, Friday, June 15th, 2012.' Includes bibliographical references. 'This paper explores the dynamics of the whip within the broader context of party politics in the Ontario Legislature. Drawing on the existing literature, personal interviews, and experiential research, I identify the characteristics of the whip's office unique to Queen's Park and, more specifically, the current parliament wherein no party holds a majority of seats.

'Renewable Energy in Ontario

'Canadian Political Science Association' -- Cover. '2015 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences' -- Cover. Includes bibliographical references. 'Significant renewable energy development occurred in Ontario from 2004-2013. Development was quickly intensified, public policy was erratic and subsidies were visible to the public. Through a series of interviews with various actors, it was apparent that the removal of municipal authority and lack of shared benefits increased rural identity and the existence of protest groups.

'This place'

'Submitted to: Graham White.' -- Cover. Includes bibliographical references. 'Trying to describe the culture of Queen's Park after only ten months experience may seem presumptuous, and perhaps it is. Yet in some ways, and Intern is particularly suited to this endeavour. One of an Intern's primary functions is to observe, and to learn as much about the inner workings of the Ontario Legislature as possible. Interns have freer and broader access to people, places and parties than virtually anyone else at Queen's Park.

'Trust me, please!'

Includes bibliographical references. “After working as an Intern at Queen's Park and participating in these discussions I hope I can provide a vehicle for unbiased suggestions which may be considered to assist politicians in their efforts to improve their profession's reputation. These suggestions are the results of interviews with politicians and others involved in politics across Canada, including Ontario, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Quebec, as well as the UK.

Analysing the public relations strategies of Ontario's Auditor-General and Ombudsman

And now a word from our sponsors

Includes bibliographical references. 'This paper will identify corporate motivations for sponsorship in the existing literature and amongst OLIP's sponsors. After reviewing the literature and speaking to some of OLIP's sponsors, it appears that sponsors have multiple motivations for entering into a sponsorship agreement. OLIP's sponsors differ widely in their organizational purpose and objectives, but some patterns did appear in their sponsorship objectives, which are reflective of patterns in the existing literature.
