One of the first things Raisa Masud will tell you about being a federal cabinet minister is that it’s hectic.

The second thing she’ll tell you, and it might sound funny considering we are talking about politics, is that co-operation is what makes getting through the day possible. That means fostering co-operation with other parties as well as having a team that can get you from one meeting to the next, she said.

And 17-year-old Masud knows what she’s talking about. She spent a day this week shadowing Ottawa Centre MP and Environment and Climate Change Minister Catherine McKenna during what McKenna called one of her “craziest, busiest” days yet.
