Thank you to the many volunteers who came out for the Day of Action yesterday organized by our local Liberal Commission Clubs! It was a huge success thanks to you! We had a large number of door to door canvassers and callers of all ages. We were pleased to see several volunteers who came out for the first time since the 2015 campaign and others who were coming out for their first time to volunteer with the Liberal Party! Together they reached many hundreds at the doorstep and hundreds more over the phone over the course of the full day! We found new Liberal supporters, several new Liberal volunteers and gained valuable feedback about the Trudeau government. A huge thanks to everyone involved!
A huge thank you to the panelists, organizers and over 75 attendees for making our discussion forum and social on Advancing Gender Equality a very positive memorable evening despite the heavy rain downpour that evening. The panelists (Ruby Sahota, Jennifer Canning, Karen George, Elizabeth Lorenzin, Danielle Takacs and Sandra Vos) shared informative, inspiring and moving stories based on their personal experiences.They offered advice and guidance to women and men to ensure advancement of gender equality. They answered a wide range of questions from the audience. Lin Fines did an amazing job as a moderator and sharing her own stories and knowledge about challenges women have faced, and continue to face, in politics and the workforce. More great discussions were had at the social that followed.
We were pleased to have another great turnout for our 5th community forum on making homes more senior friendly, hosted by the Brantford-Brant Senior Liberals Club (BBSLC). Our special guest this time was Asmah Khan, a registered nurse. Previous forums our that Seniors Club have organized have included special guest speakers from Brantford Social Services, the March of Dimes, Saint Vincent de Paul, Brantford Red Cross and the Brantford Seniors' Resource Centre.
Thank you to the over 50 attendees who attended our latest monthly breakfast social! A great time was had by all and we were especially pleased to hear from our special guest Azra Alagic, Daughter of the Vote for Brantford-Brant, who shared her stories from the Daughters of the Vote Experience as our riding's representative in Ottawa. A special thank you to Azra for the fantastic talk and taking questions from our attendees.
Our club members and supporters (Team Liberal Club Walkers) were proud to take part in the Coldest Night walk on February 25th, 2017 and raise over $3500 (with the most donors in Brantford) for the Welcome In Resource Centre and Why Not Youth Centres that help the homeless, those in poverty and at-risk youth.

Members of the our Women's club and our allied supporters (alongside many others in our community) were glad to do our part in helping to make Christmas a little Merrier for those in need by delivering Christmas Baskets from the Food Bank today.
