Why no women candidates for PM? Quite a few seem qualified.

Recommended Posts

I am a bit curious we do not see more women in leadership roles in Canada. Beverly McLachlin, Olivia Chow, Eve Adams, Carolyn Parrish and others are young, bright, and known to be resourceful, creative, and objective. Is there a reason there seems to be a gender barrier to the Canadian throne?

Is the Chief Justice of Canada, and First Deputy to the Governor General of Canada. Pretty big leadership role. The Canadian Head of State, QEII, is also female, I believe.

Those are your examples of qualified women? I almost spit out my coffee when I saw Chow and Parrish.

To me the gender isn't relevant. It's the ability to do the job that concerns me. Merit is key. I don't want a female to be PM just because she's a female. I want her to be PM cause she's the best person for the job?

Marta Hall Findley would make a far superior PM than any of the current candidates, including May.

But Justin Trudeau has nice hair and a fancy last name.

Though I'm not sure there's anything under the hair....

Oh, so on the other post where you said you are thinking about voting for him, you were just spouting bs, or is this the bs?

I think, on balance, the Liberals have the best plan for Canada from what they've presented. I think, on balance, their leader...well, see above. I think I'd like Trudeau and Mulcair to switch places. I really considered voting NDP (and I'm still considering it) because of Mulcair. I'm considering voting Liberal in spite of Trudeau.

Elizabeth May is a very capable female candidate running for PM

She should run faster.

Mulcair is clearly the most competent leader, but leads an unappealing party.

I feel exactly the same way.

I have no doubt there are qualified women out there that would do a great job in the leadership role,but certainly not any of the one's you have listed.

The Conservatives have had a female leader as have the NDP.No female Liberal leader yet.

Justin Trudeau is just a figurehead for the Liberal Party,the real leader is Gerald Butts.I have no doubt he fully supports the recent Leap Manifesto too.
