Refreshing to hear a politician that actually had a proper job at one time. Too many are career politicians and never held a real job in their life.

Ironic - our PM never had a real job and is now a career politician. :rave:

irony: a state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects.

joe trudeau's political career does not meet those terms. we got what we voted for # anyonebutharper

Just a speculative fiction. No cause for alarm.

I'm sure Joe learned a lot about people talking to all those drunks, which bar was it ?

they say happiness is not about having more, its about liking what you got and all i really wanted was … anyone but harper

But I never voted for Joe no point in voting Liberal up here cuz NDP is a shoo in due mostly to the FN vote

Because not being full time means you're not a teacher.

It is easy to dodge our responsibilities, but we cannot dodge the consequences of dodging our responsibilities.

Ya teaching actualy sounds pretty good what with all the days off in addition to the 2 months in the summer, you only work 9-3 ;) and @ 70k with a masters the money ain't bad, it all sounds great except for the part where you have to teach 30+ kids

We can shit talk Joe for not holding down a "real job" but I am just happy that the last 2 PM's were not lawyers. Not that all lawyers make bad politicians, but all politicians don't need to be lawyers.

31 kids to a classroom. In this country/province that is simply unacceptable. One of the reasons people should not vote for Christy Clark.

My ski buddy the old teach explained the difference between 30 which was the old limit and 36 of todays kids many of which are special needs yadayada and he pointed out exactly why it was impossible for him to do the job as it suposed to be done

Joe Trudeau at least had run for and was elected to public office a couple of times

Trump has never been anything political but an embarrassment
