The Nellies host a pink Tea at Oliver school library with special guest Laurie Blakeman.

On Oct 18, 1929 women were declared 'persons' under the law and forever changed the face of Canadian politics.  To commemorate this anniversary, Oliver students hosted a Pink Tea, a tradition developed over a century ago to engender solidarity among suffragists.  These gatherings were a way for women to organize the pursuit of women's rights.

Laurie Blakeman delivered a rousing talk on the history and future of women's rights.  Messages of support were read from Premier Rachel Notley, Mayor Don Iveson, City Councillor Bev Esslinger and Nellie McClung program founder Bob Hopchin.
