Women at the back of the political bus

Here's another reason why Canada needs a more inclusive democracy. Chantal Hebert wrote a great column in the Toronto Star today on the diminished role of women in the 39th Parliament. (Click the link in the title for the original article).

I will share this quote, which is an eloquent and succinct summary of the current state of affairs on the hill:

"With every passing day, the business of reciprocal character assassination that passes for a legitimate occupation in Parliament is claiming more energy, to the detriment of intelligent debate."

Hear, hear.
