The Canadian Association for Equality is absolutely delighted to announce The Honourable Roger Gallaway has accepted an appointment to our Advisory Committee. Roger has agreed to make a few remarks at our Meet and Greet event on September 28th for the new Canadian Centre for Men and Families. We hope many of you can join us to meet Roger and also check out CAFE’s new facility.

The Honourable Roger Gallaway PC: Roger has been a mayor, a police board member, and a Member of Parliament, representing the riding of Sarnia-Lambton for the Liberal Party from 1993 to 2006. In 2003 he was made a Member of the Queen’s Privy Council. From December 2003 to July 2004, he served as parliamentary secretary to the Leader of the Government in the House of Commons, with special emphasis on democratic reform. A graduate of the University of Windsor Faculty of Law he says his epiphany occurred in 1998 when he became House chair of a joint Senate/Commons committee set up to study custody and access issues in divorce. That committee’s recommendation for shared parenting in its report For the Sake of the Children enjoyed broad public support. A musician, Galloway formed the band “True Grit” with several Liberal MPs, including future Prime Minister jean Chretien. He is working on a publication that will tell the stories of fathers and their children who have been victims of the courts. Married for 41 years he is the father of four and grandfather of six.
