The women who are Premiers of our provinces are figureheads who were pulled along and installed under the myth of female inclusiveness and consentuality, yet we get Nationalistic bigotry under Dunderdale and Marois, using their platforms to induced hatred of the other, among their most ignorant citizens, for votes. This is the same divide and conquer tactic used by our male premiers. What has changed then, why celebrate gender, for it's own sake, when these incompetents are just bad leaders who are poor examples to youth, regardless of sex or professions of feminism. The old axiom, the hand that rocks the cradle..., is more true today in our nuclear family-based society than it ever was. This is where Real Leadership is always demanded; infants do not respect figureheads! So, with the proliferation of stay at home Dads, and empty nest Premierettes, let's celebrate what we have been doing since the dawn of humanity; sharing gender roles as necessary, and figuring out how to go forward with the most capable people guiding us(, but not necessarily out front with a silly hat on their head, beating their chest). There may be no women on city council, but Bill Rowe praised one unsuccessful candidate this morning for her moxy! I though that was a little bit of a condescending word choice, maybe it was high praise and he simply has been watching too many Humphrey Bogart movies and could not come up with a better one? Maybe, the best leaders in our province are the ones now carefully raising daughters, right now, with integrity, who are being equipped to lead us in a coming future, instead of the females of a certain cultured class lobbying for an enforced state of equality that brings no real benifical change, except that the coffee-drinking cabinet minister can now hide behind a woman, who, to the politically correct, represents all women (but really represents her own chosen class values under a populist disguise) and now stand in to take the fall for the governments abuse of power. Women rule the world, and very sagely, invented religion and politics many years ago as a pacifier to keep men out of more important realworld affairs during time off from war.

"The battle of the sexes is over. We won the second women started doing pole dancing as exercise" - Ryan Gosling ("Crazy, Stupid, Love"). We have elected councilors, mayors, MHAs, MPs and Premiers that happened to be women. They weren't elected because they were women, they were elected because the voters thought they were the best candidates to get the job done. And that's the way it should be, voting for what's between their ears and not what's between their legs.
