23-year-old Robert Marsh, a BCom’07 graduate from Queen’s School of Business, has persevered through an intense boot camp and made the list of the top four ambitious young candidates to compete for the title of Canada’s Next Great Prime Minister, the top prize of $50,000 and an internship at Magna International next week on CBC-TV.

Host Alex Trebek will lead the four finalists as they are grilled by former prime ministers: Paul Martin, Brian Mulroney, Kim Campbell and Joe Clark.

Marsh, originally from Dartmouth, N.S., told the Cape Breton Post that he’s always been interested in politics and felt the competition was a great opportunity to have his voice heard and get other young people interested in politics.

Watch to see who will be named Canada’s Next Great Prime Minister on March 18 at 9 p.m. on CBC.
