Quote of the Week, 7/24/2021, below: Charlotte Whitton once side, “We all have ability. The difference is how we use it.” For more about Charlotte Whitton, please refer to the excerpt from wikipedia, in italics, below: Charlotte Elizabeth Whitton OC CBE (March 8, 1896 – January 25, 1975) was a Canadian feminist and mayor of Ottawa. She was the first woman mayor of a major city in Canada, serving from 1951 to 1956 and again from 1960 to 1964. Whitton was a Canadian social policy pioneer, leader and commentator, as well as a journalist and writer. From Queen’s, she became a civil servant as the private secretary for Thomas Low, MP and Minister of Trade in Liberal Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King‘s first government. When Low lost his parliamentary seat, Whitton then focused on her role as founding director (1922) of the Canadian Council on Child Welfare, and worked there to 1941. This became the Canadian Welfare Council, now the Canadian Council on Social Development, and helped bring about a wide array of new legislation to help children and immigrants. In 1934, Whitton was named a Commander of the Order of the British Empire at the 1934 New Year Honours. She served on the League of Nations Social Questions Committee. Whitton was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Laws by Queen’s in 1941. She published two books in 1943 (see below). Despite her strong views on women’s equality, Whitton was a strong social conservative, and did not support making divorce easier. She was a regular columnist in Ottawa’s daily newspapers. Whitton was elected to Ottawa’s Board of Control in 1950, leading the city-wide polls, and started her term on January 1, 1951. Upon the unexpected death of mayor Grenville Goodwin in August of the same year, only some eight months into his term, Whitton was immediately appointed acting mayor, and on 30 September 1951 was confirmed by city council to remain mayor until the end of the normal three-year term. Witton is sometimes mistakenly credited as the first woman ever to serve as a mayor in Canada, but this distinction is in fact held by Barbara Hanley, who became mayor of the small Northern Ontario town of Webbwood in 1936. Whitton is the first woman to serve as mayor of a large Canadian city. Whitton was elected Ottawa mayor in the general municipal election in her own right in 1953, serving until 1956. She turned it into a full-time job. She ran again for mayor of Ottawa in 1960, and was elected, serving until 1964, when she was defeated on her try for re-election.
