Saskatoonians Turn Out to Election Forum on Issues Important to Women
Members from all the major parties participated in the Community Forum with Federal Candidates Focusing on Issues Particular Importance to Women held in the auditorium of the Frances Morrison Library.
Each candidate had a chance to give some opening remarks and then they responded to questions from the Chair and from the floor. There was no shortage of great questions and they ranged from questions on homelessness, changes in the mandate and funding from Status of Women, universal and affordable child care, what the parties were doing, if anything, to encourage more women candidates, international aid, their party's position on the report that identified a very high rate of women incarcerated for "income generating crimes" who do not pose a threat of violence to the community.
