The former leader of Ontario’s NDP has a challenge for the G8 nations and for Canadian university students: Control cancer.
With a measuring tape swung around her neck, Lydia Manget sits across from a rack of clothes ready for a fashion show that sold out two weeks ago.
Manget is the owner of Felicia’s Collection, the boutique providing clothing for the show sponsored by the Canadian Federation of University Women Scarborough.
The proceeds of the show will go to support the Scarborough Women’s Centre and to Centennial College Student Awards. A raffle will also be held, with its proceeds going to the Stephen Lewis Foundation which funds HIV/AIDS related projects in Africa.
