Like much of what went on Tuesday for Justin Trudeau’s swearing in, his pledge for gender parity in cabinet was a mirage as it's now known that he failed to deliver on his promise.
How could that be? Well, while there are equal numbers around the cabinet table, turns out that women in Trudeau’s cabinet will be paid considerably less.
Of the 15 women in Trudeau’s cabinet, five of them are not full ministers but Minister’s of State, which means "junior cabinet ministers" who will be paid a lot less. He delivered an equal number but not equal pay or status.
After media reports came out on this, Trudeau’s office scrambled. They told iPolitics that it was a bureaucratic glitch that will be fixed.
Trudeau said he wanted equality in his cabinet. Parity, because it’s 2015.
If it is 2015, why are all the minister of state positions held by women? I’m not shocked though.
Like a typical progressive, Justin Trudeau’s version of equality is all smoke and mirrors.
I not only thought that Trudeau could find 15 competent women to sit in his cabinet, I thought he could find more which is one of my arguments against his 50-50 gender parity rule. But Trudeau promised parity. He said an equal number of men and women and he was applauded for delivering. Except he didn’t.
He may have invited 15 women into the cabinet room but five of them would have to go eat at the kids table getting smaller portions than the others.
