The Ottawa West-Nepean Federal NDP had a full house for their Spaghetti Dinner and Women in Politics panel held in the Ukrainian Orthodox Church Hall. Supporters from across the riding as well as several area ridings came out to help us get ready for our upcoming Federal Election Campaign.

On hand was Angella MacEwen, who chose our event to announce that she will be seeking the nomination to be our NDP candidate. Expect to hear more about our nomination meeting in the coming weeks.

Patrons enjoyed a satisfying meal of spaghetti with choice of salads, and apple pie à la mode for dessert, while talking politics with new and old friends.

After dinner, previous NDP Federal Candidate Marlene Rivier led a discussion of Women in Politics with our panel, former NDP MPP & Minister Evelyn Gigantes, political commentator Kathleen Monk, and City Councillor Theresa Kavanagh. The panelists talked about their own challenges and triumphs in the political sphere, and offered advice to other women who might be considering entering politics themselves.
