Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians

I will be honoured to attend the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association 49th Canadian Meeting in mid July in Charlottetown. The Honourable Kathleen Casey is the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly of Prince Edward Island and she will be our host during the deliberations. She has been a glorious mentor to me over my time serving as Deputy Speaker in British Columbia. The discussions are fascinating from a procedural perspective - how each jursidiction in the commonwealth grapples with particular issues will continue to be the focus/challenge of maintaining order in our respective jurisdictions. The Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians will be seeking resolution on a number of topics that make "cities fit for girls and women." There is much work to do.
