Megan Metz, Daughters of the Vote delegate for Skeena-Bulkley Valley, B.C., speaks with reporters as young women from across the country took their seats in the House of Commons for the program organized by Equal Voice on April 3, 2019. This year’s event runs virtually from March 5-8. The Hill Times photograph by Andrew Meade
