New College alumna and Whitby MP Celina Caesar-Chavannes (New ’98), known for her fearlessness and unapologetic ways when it comes to social injustice, has been included in Refinery 29 Canada’s list of “Powerhouses: The Canadian Women Killing It in 2018.” To quote: “To those inclined to lump white privilege and systemic racism in with magic beans and the Easter Bunny, the MP from Whitby, ON, has proven a powerful and irrepressible foe, unafraid to talk about our country’s very real racial inequalities, even if it gets her labelled a self-serving racist in her own right . . . . But if her tendency towards telling it like it is has summoned some extreme internet vitriol, Celina Caesar-Chavannes has also earned the respect and admiration of hundreds of Canadians.” You can find out more by reading the entire list of women highlighted by Refinery 29.
