Bergen Attends Girls Igniting Real Leadership Forum


Southport, MB – Today, Candice Bergen, Member of Parliament for Portage-Lisgar, attended the Girls Igniting Real Leadership Forum (G.I.R.L) in Southport. The purpose of the event was for young girls from Southern Manitoba to meet and discuss issues facing girls today and solutions to address them.

"This was a great opportunity to meet and spend time with many of the future leaders from Portage-Lisgar,” said Ms. Bergen.  "I’d like to thank Alexandrea Nadeau, who is young leader herself, for putting on this great event.”

Approximately thirty people gathered at the Flightline Building in Southport to examine how to tackle challenges for young women.

"Canada is one of the best places in the world for women to lead and succeed.  With this many hardworking and bright young women in Southern Manitoba, I know we have a great future ahead,” concluded Bergen.
