"If we want politics to be better, to do better, to reflect the rich diversity of this country and to consider the greater good, we need more women to make their voice heard. "
"The lack of women in leadership decreases diversity. When we decrease diversity, we decrease the pool from which we draw ideas and solutions. Equal Voice understands that diversity in leadership enriches us all and that's why EV's work is important to a stronger Canada."
"Canadian women don't speak with one voice which is why EV is so valuable in uniting us all in our efforts to get involved, get connected and get elected at every political level throughout this country."
"Canadians' support for electing more women from coast-to-coast-to-coast is so encouraging! Join EV so that we can further empower Canadian women to have their voices where it counts - at the political decision making table. Let's make this happen and ...now!"
"As a longtime member, I am proud to help build EV's membership so women can work together to confront our common challenges. A critical mass will make a difference for women's equality and I'm committed to helping us get there."
"We need more women elected so young girls can have more role models. Electing more women isn't just a desire, it is a necessity for Canada's future. "
"Having capable, qualified women elected to public office is important in the development of well balanced policies."
"Women in positions of political leadership make a huge difference in how campaigns are run – and won – and improve the chances of having legislation adopted once elected because of their collaborative approach to decision-making."
"Equal Voice gets it and Canadians get it. Strengthened participation means a strengthened Canada."
"Studies have proven that women improve the management and performance of companies. Meaning that we, as women in politics, must also be improving the management and performance of this country. So I will continue to work to ensure there are more women. This is not only an issue of moral or ethical equality - it's just good sense."
