Some sad news: Ontario's first ever female cabinet minister, Margaret Birch, has died at age 99. She was a pioneer in #onpoli , appointed in 1972 to cabinet by Premier@WilliamGDavisPC . She was a strong, elegant, principled, caring force in politics and will be missed by many.

Margaret Birch was always indebted to @WilliamGDavisPC  for making her Ontario's first female cabinet minister. I gave her a signed copy of my bio on Mr. Davis. He wrote: "You have been a great friend & a major contributor to the Province. Many Thanks. Bill." #onpoli 

This was the story I wrote almost two years after seeing 97-year-old Margaret Birch, Ontario's first ever female cabinet minister. She died today at 99. #onpoli  @OntarioPCParty 

How great is this: Margaret Birch, Ontario's first ever female cabinet minister, turned 98 today. Just spoke to her. "I feel fine," she says. "Not quite the energy I wish I had but fine." Birch was MPP from Scarborough East from 1971-85 & embodied civility in politics. #onpoli
