OTTAWA—Equal Voice, an organization “dedicated to electing more women to all levels of political office in Canada,” has spent the better part of the last two decades purportedly trying to achieve its mission through campaign schools, panels, luncheons, award ceremonies, mentorship programs, conferences, and parties (oh, the parties). All the usual ways Hill-adjacent organizations try to draw in funders, donors, and supporters. You, dear reader, were probably there. Shaking hands, enjoying a drink, and feeling good about yourself for furthering this noble cause. We know, because we were right there, too.
