The Queen of the Hurricanes to Return to Thunder Bay! December 22nd 2014

In 1938, Elsie Gregory MacGill arrived in Fort William, Ontario (now Thunder Bay).  She was ready to start a new and exciting position as Chief Aeronautical Engineer at Canadian Car and Foundry (now Bombardier). 

Elsie left the region suddenly in 1943, but a chance to discuss her incredible life as a a woman of many firsts, a famous war personality during the Second World War, and a prominent Canadian feminist will take place at the Thunder Bay Historical Museum on December 22nd, 2014 at 7pm!

I am looking forward to sharing this incredible story with you!

Amazing Night at BPW Book Launch!

The book launch with BPW Ottawa was a wonderful evening!  Many thank to all the members of BPW Ottawa who organized such a wonderful event at Ottawa City Hall.  It was a great evening of socializing, and sharing the incredible accomplishments and life story of Elsie Gregory MacGill.

Elsie was definitely with us in spirit as a former Toronto Business and Professional Women's Club member, a former Ontario Provincial President and National President!  To share her story with BPW members and guests was a honour.
