A Tradition Worth Following

Good to see Charest has gone from "precedent to tradition" in once again having a gender-equal cabinet. I was very pleased when Stéphane Dion pledged to appoint women to 50% of cabinet, Senate and Crown corporation positions should he ever become Prime Minister. I hope we will soon see Michael Ignatieff pledge to continue this tradition. I expect he will and I look forward to the day when we have gender equality in the executive branch of our federal government (with women in some of the highest positions) when the Conservatives are finally thrown from office.
