Daughters of the Vote Descend on Parliament Hill Middlesex County Well Represented

March 8, 2017 (Ottawa, ON) - Karen Vecchio, Member of Parliament for Elgin-Middlesex-London (EML) and Official Opposition Critic for Families, Children and Social Development, was excited to welcome the delegates participating in Equal Voice's 338 Daughters of the Vote (DOV), in Ottawa.

DOV Delegates from all 338 ridings across the country representing every federal riding in Canada were selected to travel to the nation's capital to occupy their Member of Parliament's seat in the Chamber as the representative for their community. While seated in the Chamber the delegates had the opportunity to listen to former Prime Minister The Right Honourable Kim Campbell's keynote address followed by statements from the Interim Leader of the Official Opposition, Rona Ambrose, and Green Party Leader Elizabeth May. Following the speeches the delegates had the opportunity to ask questions to the Prime Minister concerning issues of importance to young women and girls.

"March 8th marks 100 years of women's political engagement in Canada," said Vecchio. "There is no better way to celebrate this anniversary, on International Women's Day, than to invite these young women to Canada's Parliament to take their seat in the Chamber."

Vecchio welcomed constituent and DOV Delegate Delany Leitch to Ottawa and invited her to take the Elgin-Middlesex-London seat in the Chamber. Vecchio was honoured to also sit and meet with DOV Delegate Kayla Koke from MP Bev Shipley's riding of Lambton-Kent-Middlesex.
