"Increased involvement of women in political leadership roles strengthens Canadian democracy."
"It's really a no-brainer! Better representation means more robust input at decision-making tables. That means better policy outcomes. That's good for Canada."
"I not only want more women in the House; I want more women managing finance, foreign affairs and national defence."
"Having capable, qualified women elected to public office is important in the development of well balanced policies."
"Women have a perspective that needs to expressed. We are an equal to our male counterparts; remember votes for women translate to stronger voices for women. "
"At Women’s College Hospital the motto is Non Quo Sed Quo Modo – “it’s not what you do but how.” It’s the same in politics and more women change not only what is discussed but how we work together to make change in the public good. "
"It's about damn time."
"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."
"Research shows that there is a direct correlation between a corporation's performance and the number of women in the boardroom and C-suite. Why wouldn't we want to see those same results in politics and government? By supporting Equal Voice's membership campaign, one day we will."
"I am proud to call myself an Equal Voice Champion because, with the Canadian Parliament consisting of just 25% elected women and the Alberta Legislature consisting of just 26% elected women, our organization still needs to exist. Until we work ourselves out of a job by seeing more elected woman to all levels of Canadian government, Equal Voice matters."
