October 20, 2010, 8:58 AM EST
Despite years of effort by groups promoting greater equality in politics and some political parties, the number of women, workers of colour, people with disabilities and LGBT folk elected to the Ontario Legislature is still abysmally low.
The Ontario Federation of Labour's Political Action and Human Rights Departments are organizing regional workshops for members of equity seeking groups who might be interested in becoming candidates in the provincial election scheduled for October 2011.
The workshops are scheduled as follows:
October 30 - London
November 6 - Sudbury
November 6 - Ottawa
November 13 - Oshawa
November 13 - St. Catharines
November 20 - Mississauga
*The registration fee is $20 and lunch will be provided.
