Only twelve women have ever reached Canada’s most senior political role: as a First Minister (Prime Minister or Premier). The leadership of these remarkable women spans three decades, crosses political stripes, and extends from coast to coast to coast.
No Second Chances is about examining the rise and fall of these women – and what their experiences reflect about us as Canadians.
Twelve Women. Three Decades. One Journey.
This is No Second Chances.

Finale, Part 3: Women In Politics
The second panel of the day was moderated by filmmaker and President of Komal Minhas Inc., Komal Minhas, and included input from former Premier of Ontario, Kathleen Wynne, former Premier of Alberta, Alison Redford, and former Premier of P.E.I Catherine Callbeck. The panelists spoke about what it was like when there were six female premiers in Canada, what still gives them hope about women’s place in politics, and how they got up after the fall.
No Second Chances culminated in a historic event where Canada’s female First Ministers came together for a moderated, future-focused conversation about how we can strengthen Canadian democracy and address the long-standing underrepresentation of women in Canadian politics.
