THE ADVOCATE V O L . 7 5 P A R T 2 M A R C H 2 0 1 7 271 THE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S PAGE By the Honourable Suzanne Anton, Q.C.* WOMEN’S RIGHT TO VOTE November 25, 2016 was the date of an important celebration in British Columbia. We gathered to mark a major milestone—100 years of women’s suffrage in the province—with a commemorative event that took place at the Vancouver Law Courts. The event was inspired by Justices Elizabeth Bennett and Mary Newbury of the B.C. Court of Appeal. The Royal BC Museum and its CEO, Jack Lohman, Thoren Hudyma of Equal Voice BC, and the students and faculty of Killarney Secondary School all joined me in bringing together a wonderful celebration to mark the occasion. I was extremely honoured to represent the Ministry of Justice and our many partners at the event. On behalf of the Government of British Colum- * The Honourable Suzanne Anton, Q.C., is British Columbia’s Minister of Justice and Attorney General.
