Despite the change in government, Ottawa has continued with the same failed trickle-down economic policies of the past.

Manitoba women led the way
On January 28, 1916, Manitoba women became the first in Canada to win the right to vote and the right to hold provincial office. A historic achievement, the result of decades of struggle led by women like M J Benedictssen, and later on Nellie McClung. Unfortunately, First Nations women fought much longer to receive the right to vote in our province and country.

ASHTON DEMANDS APOLOGY FOR INSULT TO INDIGENOUS LEADER
OTTAWA – Niki Ashton (MP-Churchill) and her colleagues stood up in the House of Commons today, demanding answers from Minister Aglukkaq about the failings of the Nutrition North Canada program and her dismissal of reports of people eating out of the landfill in Rankin Inlet: “Mr. Speaker, what is truly shameful is that people in my part of the country continue to go hungry because Nutrition North is not working for them, the way it is not working for northern people across our country. As for Rankin Inlet, they deserve more than intimidation and empty rhetoric from the current government. We should be doing everything we can to ensure that nobody in the North has to go to the dump to get food. We need to get to the bottom of the demand that the minister made to Rankin Inlet officials. When did she ask their office for an apology? Was this a directive from the PMO? Do they truly believe this is how northern people deserve to be treated?”

Legislation that Affects Women // Des lois qui Concernent les Femmes
I would like to share an update regarding the fight for women’s rights in Parliament and across Canada. The Conservative government has been pushing hard against women’s equality in the House of Commons these past months. Several pieces of regressive Conservative legislation have been presented that would effectively turn the clock back on the status of women in our country.
