Goal – Encourage more Women into the Political Arena

THUNDER BAY – Encouraging more women to enter the fray and battle of the political arena was the goal of Women in Politics. The educational and informational session hosted at the Valhalla Inn in Thunder Bay demonstrated how despite differences in political ideology, women often seem more willing to work together.

There were several declared, and soon to declare candidates at the three and a half hour session yesterday hosted by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, The Paro Centre, Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce and hosted live in NetNewsLedger.

The ladies enjoyed hearing from Mayors, Councillors and MPs, on the top issues that they need to know to succeed at a political campaign.

The atmosphere, and the engagement offered an insight for candidates and prospective candidates on how to form their campaign team, how to campaign, how to fundraise, and all of the important areas that need to be a part of a successful political campaign.
