Jody Wilson-Raybould

Don't know how this will shake out in the next election but hope we don't go from bad to worst. How bout Jody Wilson-Raybould for the next P.M. She's not only got obvious integrity, but she's also a women and, even tho I'm a male of the species ... I feel it is time to give the female half a chance. After all, look how us men have brought this world to the brink of destruction. Fact is - women carry and birth the children. Fact is - women have a greater compassion than us men ........ Perhaps Jody should be more than P.M. Maybe she should be Leader of the U.N.

Fact is...

... "compassion" is a word developed by men. We don't have records of how matriarchal neolithic peoples lived, we just have a few statues of very fat women.

My issue with her is the fact she taped conversations with individuals without their consent. This shows a lack of integrity. You cannot trust a person that behaves in this manner.

I support her in how she stood up to the Prime Minister; However her actions were not acceptable.

Nothing more pathetic than a "man" pimping the promotion of women.

Like, what exactly has feminism brought to men during the past 40 years, aside from no respect, job discrimination enshrined in law etc.

Fuck feminism.

It's perfectly fine for a person of integrity (especially one that is tasked in administering justice such as the Minister of Justice and Attorney General) to tape individuals lacking integrity without their consent, (especially taping such individuals in government), since it only serves to strengthen the integrity of our nation as a whole.

She has been pretty clear that "Canada" is not her priority.

ya f*ck all 'isms' but careful that you don't cross the line & fear/hate your mom, sisters & girl children ................................. and to: @Fact is .............. we do have a record of how neolithic peoples lived ............ suggest you locate & ask your 'for real' indigenous neighbours. Our indigi neighbours have taken a beating & precious few have been able to keep the string of connectivity to ancieny - but there a a few who have and they will tell you it ain't about 'matriarchy' ... it's about the matralianial ... have you got a minute to figure out the difference. I hope so. This world is in the balance right now. All of us are responsible to "Be the change you want to see in this world." Perhaps just you doing your own inner-life home work will cause the 'Butterfly Effect' and avert tragedy on Planet Earth.

Thatcher had thousands of Argentinians killed in a dispute over some penguins. There's this woman leading Myanmar who's hellbent on exterminating some Muslims from her country. The fact is, there is no evidence that women in power are better at it then men.

@realitycheck
Though I agree with you in principle, your examples are unfortunate.
The Falklands War was an invasion of territory held by the British for almost two centuries now. The majority of residents have repeatedly voted to stay under British rule. Which says nice things about Thatcher (a rare sentiment) and terrible things about Argentina.
Nowadays, the UK obviously doesn't have its sh*t together. Under Theresa May. Who is a much better example for your reasoning.
And Suu Kyi can hardly afford to give any legitimacy to permanently stateless refugees with no official status and aggressive territorial claims. Not in a state as nationalistic as Myanmar. And especially not with the generals watching across the aisle, drooling and seeking any opportunity to lunge for her throat. Also a poor comparable.
Sheikh Hasina in neighboring Bangladesh would be the autocratic example you seek. Her idea of political discourse is a one-party system that kills its political opponents. Extrajudiciously. In her defense, the other side is much worse.
Sadly for your thesis, both cases argue for having women run things. If only because rarely do they screw things up WORSE than dudes have. Though Kirchner in Argentina, and Jiang Quing (China, the Gang of Four) mismanaged things pretty catastrophically, to name but two.

All calls between government officials from their offices should be recorded, for the sake of transparency. It's not a private office they hold, it's a public office, and they are accountable to the public.
