International Women's Day Today is INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY.  A day to reflect on equality of opportunity for ALL women in ALL parts of the world.  In Canada, we have made huge strides in this regard, but gaps STILL remain. Just 100 years ago, a woman was not even legally considered a PERSON under Canadian law -- which limited their opportunity to hold office in the Senate of Canada.  Thanks to the tireless efforts of Nellie McClung and the Famous Five, that changed in 1929. As your WELLNESS QUOTE of the day, please reflect on the words of LO, a member of the Famous Five.

We can all learn from that, Tigers.  Figure out how YOU can make YOUR best contribution to YOUR generation and DO IT, Tigers!!

Have a safe and HEALTHY March Break!  See you all in week!!
