Wilson Makes Donation On Behalf Of PCs to Local Women's Shelters
(January 14, 2015) This week, Ontario PC Interim Leader MPP Jim Wilson was pleased to present a cheque on behalf of the Ontario PC Caucus to his local women's shelters, My Friend's House in Collingwood and My Sister's Place in Alliston. The donation in the amount of $1,577 for each shelter was raised from the proceeds of the Annual PC Caucus Christmas Party.
"On behalf of the Ontario PC Caucus, I am very pleased to be making a donation to such a worthy cause in our community," said Wilson. "I am so thankful for the efforts of these organizations to support victims of violence and abuse."
In the fall of 2014, the Ontario PC Caucus pushed the provincial government for a Select Committee to examine the continued problem of violence against women and in particular, sexual harassment in the workplace. Wilson and his colleagues were successful in their efforts and the PC Critic on Women's Issues, MPP Laurie Scott and the PC Critic on Labour, MPP Randy Hillier, will be representing the PC Caucus on that Select Committee. As Interim Leader, Wilson chose to make the donation to his local women's shelters in the spirit of his Caucus's efforts.
The PC Caucus remains committed to supporting those who work to combat violence against women.
