  • Council Diversity is the Goal, But It’s a Hard One to Reach, says Oldford

    True diversity around the municipal council tables in the province makes for better outcomes in the eyes of Municipalities Newfoundland and Labrador, but it is sometimes difficult convincing women to consider municipal politics.

    Karen Oldford, the president of MNL, says they will be launching an effort in the next week or so to convince people to offer themselves on September 26th, municipal election day in the province.

    Women make up about a third of all candidates, but Oldford says women should not only consider municipal office but federal and provincial as well.

    Retirees make up most of municipal councillors.
