Invitation — Be part of a new voice for women in Parry Sound-Muskoka

Posted on November 8, 2018

We are fortunate to have had a woman represent us so strongly here in Parry Sound-Muskoka in the 2015 federal election campaign; and nationally, to have such significant numbers of women representing us in Cabinet. Given the emergence of movements such as #metoo, #timesup and #icantkeepquiet, we believe this is an excellent time for Liberal women to raise a strong collective voice in Parry Sound-Muskoka politics.

Accordingly, we are asking for your support and participation in the proposed establishment of a Parry Sound-Muskoka Liberal Women’s Club under the umbrella of the National Women’s Liberal Caucus.

The voice of women in the Liberal Party of Canada, The National Women’s Liberal Caucus represents and promotes the interests of women and encourages participation in the political process at all levels through local clubs.

Currently the closest Liberal Women’s Club chapters are Algoma-Manitoulin-Kapuskasing and Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound. A Women’s Club in Parry Sound-Muskoka will be our collective forum for local engagement and representation regarding gender issues of concern to us here in our community.
