Or...

...we could simply legislate 50% of the existing male directors into having sex-change operations...

A Liberal senator wants to use the power of Parliament to force women into the boardrooms of the nation.

The bill would require all publicly traded companies, banks, insurance companies and trust companies to have 50% of their board of directors made up of women.
Yup... let's just wave that magical left-bot wand... and smooth over all of life's inequities...
"It's not fair that university degrees only be awarded to the academically gifted. They should be equally distributed amongst all the various protected categories of citizens."

"To reward those with aptitude and diligence at the expense of those lacking such attributes is a clear violation of our rights."
Uh-huh.

how about we apply the same statistical equalisation polices to medical school... i'm guessing the inuit and the blind are horribly under-represented.

or, how about the nba? they seem to be a little racially lopsided.

hey... how many ex-cons are represented in the executive ranks of corporate canada? man, you can just smell the discrimination.

vote liberal & say goodbye to the meritocracy.

On the same theme. What have we become when "social
relevance"
is as important as bridges staying up?
