       Women across Canada are campaigning not to get a particular party elected but rather to mobilize women to vote for women's issues in the June 28th Federal Election. Julie White, CAW Women's Director canvassed in Toronto Saturday June 19th.

       "We're out today just talking to women in this community about the upcoming federal election."
       "We're mounting a non partisan campaign, just talking to women about issues that are important not just to women but to women and their families and the community they live in."
       "What kinds of issues are important to you?"

       "Healthcare for sure. It's really hard to find a doctor who will take you. That kind of thing. Childcare, I'm going back to work so it's hard to find daycare. We're shopping around for that right now."

CAW Women's Director

       "We've identified 12 issues and it is interesting because the issues that you raised are in this pamphlet."
       "What we would like you to do is take this leaflet. Look at the issues. Talk to women, maybe in your family or in the neighborhood about the importance of voting and just get out and make an informed choice on election day and hopefully elect a government that works for women."


       The Woman-to-Woman campaign was first launched in the Ontario provincial election, which saw the ousting of the Ernie Eves Conservative government. Peggy Nash, the NDP candidate for Parkdale High Park riding in Toronto says she is one candidate who is listening to the campaign.

       "Well the issues that the "Woman to Woman" campaign is dealing with are some of the key issues of my campaign here in Parkdale High park. Whether it is child care or affordable housing or support to end violence against women these are key issues in our community."

CAW "Fighting Back Makes a Difference."
