Anti-Racism Day

Day is March 21, which is anti-racism day. In light of the Idle No More movement, I hope today we try to learn why things are the way they are with settlers and First Nations here in Canada.

The last residential school closed in 1996.

When wondering why things aren't better, read the Indian Act and see the segregation that occurred.

Have a wonderful day!

Being a stay at home mom

I am very happy to have the choice to be able to stay home to raise my daughter. She was feeling a little under the weather today so it was more or less a day off for myself. That said, I did read and learn about Russel Means. He was an activist with the American Indian Movement and a libertarian. I have so much to learn but get inspiration every single day.

I was also grateful to be able to chat with a friend of mine about the Idle No More movement via phone. I hope we can figure out how to move forward. Anyway, she is a mom with kids that is politically active so it's just a relief to have another mom to chat with.

For building the riding association, today I was able to correct a mistake by getting some mail out. I'm so grateful to have the executive be so understanding and work with me while I learn. (Thank you Carole!)

I'm hoping my babe will be better tomorrow. ((fingers crossed))

Well, today I tried to figure out who to ask about being a member of Calgary East's board for the position of policy. I think there are so many great possibilities out there. I'm hoping for the right one to join up. Thankfully I have so much support from the Liberal Party of Canada, Alberta executives. Thank you Naren and Wendy!

Joining a political party

Well, in the 2011 Federal Election, I got more involved in my riding and joined a political party, the Federal Liberals. I learn so much about the process at every meeting. On Monday we had an annual general meeting (AGM) and I have been elected as president.  This weekend we had a governing council meeting so I have some work to do with the transition from one president to another, getting the information from the GCM to the board and lots of other tasks that have added up.

Let's get started!
