At last night’s inaugural Parry Sound-Muskoka Liberal Women’s Club meeting, Trisha Cowie announced that she is running for candidacy in the Liberal Party for this riding in the 2019 federal election.
She is a lawyer and the owner of Cowie Law Professional Corporation in Bala and is also a volunteer with the YWCA and Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Muskoka.
Cowie, a First Nations woman, has been very vocal and present in the Parry Sound-Muskoka communities, particularly expressing her support of affordable housing, women’s rights and Indigenous rights.
Having run in the previous federal election, Cowie said she is motivated to finish what she started in 2015 and wants to be there for her community at the grassroots level.
“We’ve never had a female indigenous MP so it’s time to finally crack through that glass ceiling,” said Cowie.
