Canadian Justice Minister Peter MacKay came under fire for comments he made to the Ontario Bar Association. When asked why so few women are appointed as Federal Court Judges he replied that women don't apply because they fear the job will take them away from their children and that "women have a greater bond with their children".

I am a "semi-retired" professional cellist, born in England, but living in BC for the past 45 years. I have a passion for drawing and will endeavour to use the medium of pen-and-ink to comment each day on anything current, cultural or comical that catches my attention.
