International Women’s Day

On February 27, 2019, MPP Ghamari spoke about what she is doing in the riding to celebrate International Women’s Day in the riding of Carleton. International Women’s Day is a time to take the opportunity and reflect on the hard-fought progress of women and the men who have supported them towards real gender equality.

MPP Ghamari and her team, along with local city Councillors, have a long day of events planned all across Carleton to celebrate the occasion. Rideau-Goulbourn Councillor Scott Moffatt and MPP Ghamari will be starting off the day by hosting a breakfast reception from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. that morning at Danby’s Roadhouse restaurant located in the beautiful town of Richmond, just steps from MPP Ghamari’s constituency office.

She will then be heading for lunch in Stittsville at local Legion Branch 618 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Afterwards, she will be going to Metcalfe to enjoy High Tea at the City of Ottawa Client Service Centre with Councillor George Darouze from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Finally, MPP Ghamari will be ending her day with some appetizers at the Rideauview Community Centre in Riverside South from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., joined by Councillor Carol Anne Meehan.

These events are free and open to the public. We would like to encourage everyone to join MPP Ghamari at one or more of these events, and join her in acknowledging all of the amazing women across the province who continue to inspire us.
