Indigenous Women and Politics

Take a look at these highlights from the Aboriginal Peoples’ Commission of the Liberal Party of Canada’s “Indigenous Women and Politics” panel, featuring Jody Wilson-Raybould, Michèle Audette and Carolyn Bennett:

Michèle Audette discusses the importance of exercising one’s right to vote.

Jody Wilson-Raybould explains why she wants to run in the 2015 election.

Michèle Audette details a conversation she had with Justin Trudeau.

Translation: What I really liked about Mr. Trudeau, after having met many leaders of political parties, is that he is the only one who let me look into his eyes. I was able to have a good conversation; I felt as though I was heard, and I listened. He was frank when he told me: “Michèle, there will be days during which we’ll disagree, but there will be great days during which we will work together”. I won’t be alone in that boat (I call it a canoe, but that’s too small – there are a lot of aboriginal people – so I should call it a rabascaw) in which we will try to make sure aboriginal women are a priority.
