Mayor Hazel McCallion honoured as a 'Nation Builder' by the Famous 5 Ottawa Chapter

Mayor McCallion was honoured by the Ottawa Chapter of the Famous 5 as a "Nation Builder."  The speaker series featured women who emulate the Famous 5 - strong, determined, outspoken women. Women who through their leadership and courage have advanced the cause of equality for all in ways that have enriched their communities and their country.

The Famous 5 Ottawa Chapter's aim is to raise awareness of the 'Persons' Case, where in 1929, thanks to the efforts of the Famous Five - Emily Murphy, Louise McKinney, Nellie McClung, Henrietta Muir Edwards, Irene Parlby - Canadian women were legally declared persons.
