The Canadian Federation of Business and Professional Women Ottawa (BPW Ottawa) is hosting its next monthly meeting on Nov. 8, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at 131 Queen St. (the House of Commons). Our meeting will feature guest speaker the Honourable Joyce Murray, Member of Parliament, on women in politics to be followed by a group discussion. Wine and cheese will be served and a fee of $10 will be charged to non-BPW members, $5 for students. This event is open to the public, but we would appreciate a RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org in order to provide security with a list of names for those who plan to attend. Joyce Murray was first elected as Vancouver Quadra’s voice in Parliament in 2008 and is a fierce advocate for the key issues of environment and climate change; building a stronger, greener economy with emphasis on job creation and support for small businesses; human rights and women’s rights; education with a focus on financial support for college and university students; health and home care; and preventative health.
Joyce is the Liberal critic for Small Business and Tourism, the Asia-Pacific Gateway and Western Economic Diversification and was former vice-chair on the Committee of Status of Women.
