Rona Ambrose, federal Status of Women Minister, says she is leading a new committee of business executives to study the issue of women directors. Aiming for bold action, Ms. Ambrose told The Globe and Mail “I [told the committee] I wanted action-oriented recommendations for the government to immediately act on,” she said. “We’ve had enough studies and enough reports.” [That's quite an admission. Why bother with her phony, loaded committee?]Only junk statistics could possibly justify such an obviously junk idea as quotas for women on corporate boards, or quotas for women in any other role for that matter.
Laurel Broten, Ontario’s Minister Responsible for Women’s Issues. “The statistics are very clear,” Ms. Broten told a CBC Radio audience ..."... Improved financial performance is what you see in a company that has more women on their board.”
And why in the Hell do we still have Ministers responsible for "women's issues"? Talk about junk politics and a waste of taxpayers' money!
