"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!"
"I want our daughters & sons to be so used to seeing women in public leadership roles that it is no longer "exceptional.""
"Equal Voice is about change. Changing the face of Parliament, the composition of our legislatures and municipal councils, so that the incredibly diverse voices of women are well-represented at every committee meeting, debate, Cabinet discussion and vote. We should expect no less of our democracy or ourselves."
"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. "
"Equal Voice challenges women to move beyond exercising influence at the ballot box and supports women in winning seats on the political benches. I’m an Equal Voice champion because I want to see more women winning."
"Increased involvement of women in political leadership roles strengthens Canadian democracy."
""Its simple to me. Equal representation should already be a thing in 2015; in all levels of government and in the boardroom. Let us make it so.""
"Because equipping women with the tools, knowledge and confidence to become leaders will yield to positive changes in all aspects of life. "
""When I ran as a civic candidate, I was shocked by the number of women at the door who indicated that they did not pay attention to politics. Yet, I consistently hear women voicing concerns about issues of government on social media and out in public. What a difference women could make if they chose to be active in our fundamental democratic processes! I am proud to be involved in empowering women to take this initiative. ""
"Why should you join Equal Voice? Do you want your voice to be equal or do you want your voice to be 24% of the male voices that dominate Canada's Parliament? Do you want Canada's Parliament to rank 45th out of 189 countries in terms of representation of women? You should join Equal Voice because you want to be represented, and you are no longer willing to be embarrassed by this country's poor record. Women are needed in Parliament, and only you can get us there. "
