Ontario East Fall Gathering

CFUW Kanata was delighted to welcome representatives from all of Ontario East’s clubs to this year’s Fall Gathering. Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson, Councillor Marianne Wilkinson, and Karen McCrimmon, MP for Kanata-Carleton were also in attendance as were Sandra Thompson, president Ontario Council, and Mary Partington, Regional Director, Ontario East. 

Our guest speakers, Linda MacDonald and Jeanne Sarson, engaged us with the compelling story of their mission to change Canadian law to reflect the cruel realities of non-State torture and recognise it as a human rights crime. We were honoured to have them share their experiences gained from presenting their cause to diverse audiences in several different countries; and the successes and setbacks they have encountered along the way. Their determination and profound commitment to this cause are truly inspirational.
