Agnes Macphail was elected to represent the Grey South-East Riding on Dec. 6, 1921, over 95 years ago. Macphail gave 6,685 days (18 years, 3 months, 19 days) of federal political service as an MP, and was not joined by another woman in the House until 1935. She is truly a parliamentary pioneer. #BecauseOfAgnes
