As a Canadian living and working in the UK, I have heard ample of the Suffragettes in Britain. It is refreshing and a great opportunity to share this with my feminist daughter.

The year 2016 marks the 100th anniversary of women first winning the right to vote in Canada. On January 28—the date that Manitoba became the first province to pass women’s voting rights into law—Library and Archives Canada (LAC), in partnership with the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, will officially launch an outdoor exhibition titled Let Them Howl: 100 Years of Women’s Suffrage.

Be sure to check out the exhibitions January 28 to February 15, 2016 on the Rideau Canal Skateway in Ottawa (presented in partnership with Winterlude) and February 12–21, 2016 at the Festival du Voyageur in Winnipeg.

I am a Canadian living and working in the UK. I live in a small village near Windsor, with my husband of 20 years (thanks love!) We have two nearly grown up gals of 16 and 19. (thanks again, love!) Finally, we have two small dogs that make sure we get out into God's pastures, what ever the weather, whether it's nice or not. I am always glad when I'm out, as I can concentrate on prayer. Sometimes the prayer is interrupted with other dogs and their walkers, but I am grateful for the opportunity to get out and clear the head and heart. I have been a saved Christian since 1987 (thanks John) and have seen my husband and children saved since 2011ish. (thanks so much Barry). We have seen the humble beginnings of a Bible believers church. While people may come and go, the ones that have found, tried and made up their own mind what they do; we study the inspired, infallible word of God, praising our Lord Jesus Christ through prayer and fellowship. (thanks again, Barry). In my moments of pleasure, sometimes at unreasonable hours, I read the scripture through notes I have taken from studies. I also, write and illustrate. This is a new adventure for me, I would love to incorporate these things into the blog and share it with you! XxVal Mumma Bear Wellness is a new blog, sharing with you my own experiences through the tangled web that is GP vs Holistic views. This will NOT be a forum for tussles as I explain in the first post, both can work together. I would love to hear about someone's experiences in relation to the post topic! Until then, go and have the best day you can with every blessing!
