By Staff

March 6th, 2023



Times changed and events had to take place virtually – which didn’t stop the Women of Halton Action Movement from celebrating its 20th annual International Women’s Day fundraiser, the longest running event of its kind, with a virtual event – The “un” Dinner party.

March 8th, keynote speaker Lisa LaFlamme will talk about her recent trip to Tunisia, her career, some of her best ever interviews and what she has planned for her future.

Did anyone think Lisa LaFlamme was going to sit in a corner and take up knitting ?  This is a woman well worth listening to.

LaFlamme is one of Canada’s most recognizable and awarded journalists, a former national news anchor, a humanitarian and an Order of Canada recipient.

Her departure from a national news organization was a major news story that changed the way the public reacted to how woman were treated in senior roles within large corporate interests.

Tickets are available at Every ticket purchase and donation will receive a tax receipt for the full amount. At any time on International Women’s Day, March 8, 2023 or thereafter, please enjoy watching our programme at
