Sheila Copps to speak at annual Jeanne Coulthard Brunch

Stratford Gazette

The annual Jeanne Coulthard Brunch will be held at The Festival Inn this Sunday, April 29.

This year’s guest speaker will be Sheila Copps, one of Canada’s well-known female politicians.

Copps has been a prominent figure in Canadian public life for almost 35 years. In 1984 she was elected member of parliament for the riding of Hamilton East and was re-elected in five successive elections. In recent years, Copps has been working as a journalist, broadcaster, and political commentator.

The event begins at 11:30 a.m. and includes a silent auction, as well as a presentation to this year’s recipient of the Jeanne Coulthard Award.

In 2008, the Perth Wellington Women’s Group decided to honour Coulthard with an annual lunch and an award in her name. This award is presented each year to a young woman who has followed Coulthard’s example by taking an active role in her community in order to bring about change.

Tickets are $25 and available at the Festival Inn or by calling 519-272-2726.
