These ladies have certainly set the clock back!

Philpott, Wilson-Raybould have lost my respect

Re: Ms. Philpott and Ms. Wilson-Raybould

I am very saddened by the behavior of these two women. Many, many women have fought hard over many years to gain equality. These ladies have certainly set the clock back! Calling the “female” and/or the “First Nations” card demeans them both.

Yes, Mr. Trudeau has handled this event badly, but if these two women would have handled themselves with dignity and truth, solutions would have been found to satisfy all. Cloaks of secrecy never work.

They have both lost my respect. I hope for so much from all our parliamentarians and I know we can move forward and recover from the setback caused by these two women.
