Dunderdale says Canadian democracy is finally maturing

In an in-depth profile with the Globe and Mail, Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Kathy Dunderdale says that Canadian politics may finally be maturing, as three of ten Provincial leaders are now women. “I certainly didn’t dream it would be another 20 years before we’d elect another woman as premier in this country, and I certainly never dreamed it would be me.” Dunderdale spoke about the fact that the last female Premier to be elected in Canada was Catherine Callbeck in Prince Edward Island nearly 20 years ago. “I thought we shattered the glass ceiling at that point.” Check out the in-depth profile and discussion via the link below.
