Today marks Persons Day, a day that recognizes the Famous Five - Emily Murphy, Henrietta Muir Edwards, Nellie McClung, Louise McKinney, and Irene Parlby - whose tenacity and decades of struggle led to women finally being recognized as legal persons in Canada in 1929. 1/3

This was an important milestone for our society and in the struggle for women's rights. There is still much more work to be done. So while today is a celebration of equality, it is also a reminder of the many hurdles that still exist for women in Canada. 2/3

It's CPC. They aren't fond of color. They pretend to be, but actions show different. I stand with the people of Mi'kma'ki as an ally on the unceded lands of beautiful Unama'ki, the land of the fog.

And us modern women of today do not support segregation in any form or way and being forced to show our personal health information with businesses and the general public for the "right" to shop is beyond an infringment of personal rights. And all of this is against federal law.
