Join the Ottawa West-Nepean NDP for a spaghetti dinner and an evening of discussion about women in politics.

Enjoy a delicious spaghetti dinner (gluten free and vegetarian/vegan options available), while our power panel of Theresa Kavanagh (city councilor for Bay Ward), Evelyn Gigantes (former Member of Provincial Parliament for Ottawa Centre), and Kathleen Monk (former Director of Communications to Jack Layton) talk about what it's like to be a woman working in politics, how things have changed (or not), and what the future might hold.

Tickets are $50 (regular) and $25 (unwaged/low income). For the regular tickets, a federal tax receipt of $25 will be provided. You can purchase tickets on Eventbrite here, Contact us at info@ownndp.ca if you need more information.

Proceeds from the evening will go to the Ottawa West-Nepean Federal NDP to support our campaign in the upcoming federal election.

The Ontario NDP is having its biannual convention this year in Hamilton from June 14th to 16th. Our riding association got together to choose our delegation on Monday evening at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre.

Our riding association president, Alex Cullen, presided over the meeting, which selected six delegates, one youth delegate and two alternates to attend convention. They will be joined by our three Provincial Council delegates.
