With Liberals floundering time to consider voting NDP

Speaking of ethics, perhaps Glen Clark had a hand in getting these billboard adverts against immigration taken down, eh!

The Subtle Sexism of Justin Trudeau

I think any man would have been expected to "play ball" as well. The expectation that she would fold would have been placed on any man in the same situation.

No, Pondering. The article is very clear about this.

NR, do you think you could possibly come up with a less unweildy thread title? Or I can if you wish.

The article is an opinion piece. I don't believe that if she were a man Trudeau would have given up on getting SNC a deal.  Maybe if she were a man he would have switched her out faster to get someone more compliant but didn't want to give up the optics of having a FN women in high position.

It just keeps getting worse and worse for Trudeau, eh!

Sure comes across here as Trudeau being afraid. Not a good sign for the Liberal's confidence in their leader.

This article is just silly.  The structural challenges around the dual role of Min.of Justice/AG are gender neutral.  As are the political realities of various Cdn politicians deferring to Quebec, and its economic pet projects, for much of Confederation.

Speaking as a long-time feminist, the earnest attempts to apply feminist critique to this are overwrought and embarrassing.  There is plenty of other stuff to call out.

The fact is that had JRW not been an Indigenous woman, she would have been booted from the portfolio long before this.  Contrary to the hagiography that emerged after February, she was markedly ineffective as Justice Minister and (unlike Philpott for example) was rarely singled out for praise by her core constituencies (Crowns, defence bar, justice NGOs).

Trudeasu has been scoring a lot of points as the preferred person to lead the country. that's not going to hurt the Liberals, it will most likely see their approval rating shoot up. Liberals are far from death.

Are the Liberals having more problems with ethical issues?
