Cornwall ON – So could this be the replacement for embattled Minister Helena Guergis? Viewers meet MP Shelly Glover. Stories are hitting Canadian media this weekend floating her as replacement for Helena Guergis.
MP Glover has an interesting and compelling biography and is not your usual MP.
Until her election, Mrs. Glover served as a member of the Winnipeg Police Service for almost 19 years. She had a diverse career in a variety of positions including but not limited to undercover work, child abuse investigations, youth crime and gang investigations, general patrol and she was the first ever female and bilingual spokesperson appointed by her department. She is a patrol sergeant presently on a leave of absence to pursue positive change in politics. Mrs. Glover is an Anglophone who participated in the very first French Immersion program west of Ontario and graduated with a high level of proficiency in the French language. She continued her education at the University of Winnipeg where she studied Justice and Law Enforcement until she began her employment with the Winnipeg Police Service.
Mrs. Glover is a proud Métis woman who has been a very active community member with affiliations to several non-profit organizations such as: Big Sisters, Pregnancy Distress, Habitat for Humanity Women Build, the Business and Professional Women`s Association, the University Women’s Club of Winnipeg, the International Association of Women Police, the Francophone Chamber of Commerce, the Manitoba Métis Federation, Conseil Elzear Goulet and the Beausejour New Arena Planning Committee. She is also a dedicated advocate for victims of crime, women and children.
Even with the scandal it sounds like Ms Glover will make an improvement if Mr. Harper chooses to go this route. Sometimes good things come from bad.
