Antigonish NDP Candidate Moraig Macgillivary says the topics at last night’s meeting held  by the Antigonish Women’s Resource Centre and the Poverty Reduction Coalition were ones that she is very passionate about.  Topics ranged from poverty and  sexual assault to income related foods insecurities.
When asked about how to change the conversation around sexual assault and consent, she says it needs to start at a younger age, within the school system.

Macgillivary says she hopes to work in partnership with the school board to expand the current curriculm to include topics such as consent, cyber bullying, and  assault.
