Brock students given opportunity to shadow women in parliament

Taylor Holroyd, who attended the trip through the McGill program in 2014, shared her experience on their website. According to Holroyd: “On the second day, I had the amazing opportunity to shadow with MP Libby Davies of Vancouver East. Libby made me feel extremely welcome and engaged throughout the day. The highlight was certainly the meeting of the Standing Committee on Health, where I got to see Libby in her element: asking candid questions and responding with eloquence and ease. Libby has over 17 years of experience as an MP, so she had many fascinating stories to tell about her time in Parliament. We were able to speak frankly about sexism on the hill, overcoming gender barriers, and the importance of women in government.”
