From multiple news services, but USA Today in particular:
New Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he named a gender-equal cabinet "because it's 2015."
Trudeau picked 15 men and 15 women as part of a ministerial team that he says looks "like Canada".
In comparison, 4 of the 16 cabinet positions in the United States are held by women. Technically, US has 7 more “positions [that] have the status of Cabinet-rank” and 3 of them are held by women. I’m hoping our next president follows Trudeau’s lead.
My gratitude to Jim for pointing out the news north of us to me!
