Women premiers in Alberta, PEI and Newfoundland and Labrador

Dear Sir:

Les Watmough left out some important information in his June 27, 2012 letter to the editor, “Good luck, Madam Premier,” regarding women in politics and B.C. premier Christy Clark.

Catherine Callbeck of Prince Edward Island ran for the leadership of her party, the Liberal party, won the leadership, and won the job to be premier of Prince Edward Island. She was the first women to be elected as a premier.

Kathy Dunderdale of Newfoundland and Labrador ran for the leadership of her party, the Progressive Conservative party, won the leadership, and won the job to be premier of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Alison Redford of Alberta ran for the leadership  of the Progressive Conservative party, won the leadership, and won the job to be premier of Alberta.

Joe Sawchuk,

Duncan, B.C.
