Sam Oosterhoff: Ontario's Youngest-Ever MPP

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Two years ago, Sam Oosterhoff became the youngest Ontario MPP, at the age of 19. Since then, he's survived nomination challenges, weathered questions from reporters about his religious upbringing, and been made an opposition critic. Steve Paikin speaks to Oosterhoff about how he got bit by the political bug at such a young age, what it's been like to work in the legislature, and what can be done to entice more young Ontarians to the polls.
