“You’ve got to see yourself at that table:” Four stories of women in politics

In this episode, we head to the Metro Cinema where Trish hosted a panel discussion with four female politicians as part of the Edmonton International Women’s Film Festival. There were some familiar faces – NDP MLA Sandra Jansen and former Liberal MLA Laurie Blakeman. And some new faces – including Ward 5 city council candidate Miranda Jimmy and Nav Kaur, who ran for Ward 12 in 2016. They talk about the “Ah-Ha!” moment, when they first decided to run for political office. They talk about from where they’ve drawn their inspiration. And they talk about how running for office is often easier when you have a wife behind you.
