NDP Critic for the Status of Women Gerry Rogers

If this week’s announcement of new Nalcor board members is any indication, the province is not likely to see any improvement in existing inequities in representation, says NDP St. John’s Centre MHA Gerry Rogers. Rogers, who is also the NDP Critic for the Status of Women, says the new board has just three women out of 11 members, no Aboriginal people and nobody who lives in Labrador.
