From Niagara-on-the-Lake to the End of Time

The Canadian Premiers met this week in Niagara-on-the-Lake. 

A journalist asked why having an equal number of women at the table
made a difference. (Half of our Provincial and Territorial leaders are

now female).

Nobody was able to give an explanation.

They just knew it was better.

It appears that after 100 years of struggle for the vote, equal pay for equal
work etc. social justice came to Canadian politics without a lot of fuss.


A gender balance is a good thing. 
In any situation.

How different would be our history if women had been respected

and our opinions valued during the last 5,000 years.

And as our species gets ready to explore space, (something I am
so sorry I will miss as it will not happen in my life time), I think we

will be packing some hard learned lessons.

Maybe when time comes to an end and all of the species in all of the
universes are called to account, human beings will be known as

'The Just Ones'.

Wouldn't that be funny!
