Political Parties on Women's Priorities - a success

Before a crowd of 150 people, provincial party leaders David Alward (progressive conservative), Jack MacDougall (Green) and Roger Duguay (New Democrat), as well as Social Development Minister Kelly Lamrock, unwrapped their International Women’s Day gift: a pair of glasses so that they do not forget women’s point of view in their respective electoral platforms.
 
During this March 8 roundtable discussion, Political Parties on Women’s Priorities, in Moncton, Kelly Lamrock announced that the Liberal Party was committed to legislate on pay equity in the private sector. The New Democratic Party and the Green Party leaders both stated that their platforms will include pay equity legislation for the private sector. The Progressive Conservative Party is still talking of voluntary measures to reduce pay inequity and did not commit to legislation.
 
Political Parties on Women’s Priorities was organised by the New Brunswick Coalition for Pay Equity, the Regroupement féministe du Nouveau-Brunswick, the New Brunswick Child Care Coalition, and the Common Front for Social Justice in collaboration with the New Brunswick Advisory Council on the Status of Women and the Moncton & District Labour Council.
