The Grandmothers::Nora Peavoy
My aunt is Nora Peavoy and she was one of the first four female police officers in Calgary. My auntie actually left the Calgary police for the mistreatment. She was a strong feminist activist for the time too. I think she worked in the airforce as well. I don’t have any picture of her on hand at the moment but I know my mom and grandma has some. She travelled the world alone a lot and even pulled a gun on a group of men who tried to attack her. She had some wild stories. She was quite intimidating but I really liked her when I was a kid.
A Calgary Herald article about her:
