With the successful nomination of Anita Vandenbeld in Ottawa West-Nepean, she has joined a great Eastern Ontario Liberal team, and one that has great female representation.
The other ridings Liberals are running female candidates in:
Carleton-Mississippi Mills: Karen McCrimmon
Glengarry-Prescott-Russell: Julie Bourgeois
Leeds-Grenville: Marjory Loveys
Renfrew-Nippissing-Pembroke: Christine Tabbert
Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry: Bernadette Clement
The Eastern Ontario female Liberal candidates are wonderful women and all are fantastic Liberal candidates, and have a fantastic range of experiences. We have women who have fought for women’s rights internationally, who have played leadership roles in our armed forces with distinction, who have upheld law and order and the principles of justice, who have ran small businesses, who have navigated the choppy waters of the legal business and shattered glass ceilings, and who have proudly represented their communities on local council.
We have women who have succeeded as businesswomen, in the legal community, in the armed forces, in international development, and in politics. And we cannot forget provincially such bright lights of Eastern Ontario as Leona Dombrowsky and Madeleine Meilleur, who both grace the McGuinty cabinet. Let’s get these and more great female Liberals elected!
