@ 13:15 you definitely have your facts wrong
Freeland's education is in Russian and Slavic studies.
Her business background revolves around writing about it.
Makes her well qualified to get business to come to Canada
No wonder Maher exposed her as nothing but an idealist with no grounding in pragmatism.

This comment provokes.
Maybe because I just sat with eyes closed listening to a discussion on PBS about Einstein's Theory of Relativity. My eyes needed a rest.
So.. Now we know the Honorable Ms Freeland was educated in " Russian and Slavic studies"
For the benefit of the great unwashed, does that mean politics, geography ,economy, religion,history
societal issues or all of the foregoing?
If so .... does writing make it a business or an occupation?
By what stretch of imagination is the Honorable Member equipped to entice Russian and Slavic business to locate in Canada ?
How much does she know about Canadian studies?
If there is logic in the comment ...how does it equate to Bill Maher exposing an idealist rather than a pragmatist?
Does pragmatism reside in anything but character ?
Is Bill Maher staging comedic entertainment or what?
Is the sole and principal objective of the brand new youthful and diverse Liberal government to celebrate wrapping over substance?
Is power andauthority a concept beyond their competence and experience?
Do they even know what they don't know ?
Certainly it's the first impression and it didn't take long to create it.
Power and authority are not entry level positions. Learning on the job is not an option.Too much is at stake.
It's not what was advocated.
It will not be accepted .
