I'm pretty sure the reference was to her COMPLETE FAILURE as the Governor General.

"Outside of that world of hers".............the word "world" was her "space" world.........I see clarification was needed for some of the non-astronauts here on Castanet.

Her world NOW is closer to "Lost in Space"..........as the robot from that series would say to her today........."DANGER, DANGER JULIE PAYETTE".

I would give anything to have a resume like hers and to have had the experiences she has.
I agree with you she is not a failure.

I do feel she was not suited for the position she held and that appears to be evident.

You can be well educated and fit in with some groups. I feel to be in a position of manager or leader, you need some education in that area. If you do not have it, many times you lead as you were led.

I was very fortunate to have many training courses. I took the admirable qualities from each of my previous Sergeants. In the end I had no problems with any subordinates.

When Payette was criticized by most everyone in her office, I think there is a problem with her ability in management of people and working with others.

It would appear Payette was unhappy. Interesting article, she wanted to leave in 2009 already.

I'm sure she is drying any tears with all that lifetime pension monies she'll get..
She didn't even own that she was difficult to work for
and of course Mr Yappy JT is suddenly mute on the subject
AS to who will replace her? Justin will pick another Woman, if he's smart he will select an Indigenous woman.

I nominate the following ( and intent to msg him with same selection"
Alanis Obomsawin - Director, one of the acclaimed Indigenous Directors in the World

Marion Buller - jurist

Sheila Watt-Cloutier - Nobel Peace prize nominee

Buffy Saint Marie - because she is a legend

Perhaps JT will just appoint his good pal Seamus O'Reagan.

Thanks for the clarification. Yes, starship captain was always my first career choice, but alas ...

I think this is an example of The Peter Principal. It's not that she isn't smart, educated and capable but she seems incapable of leading others without serious conflict. I believe she expects too much of them and is also to private to be in the publics eye at all times.
Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you'll understand what little chance you have of changing others.

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the most of everything that comes their way.

I don't think he will pick another. Not at this time, I think he is planning a election.

IF he would have followed the protocol that was there, he wouldn't be where he is today. BUT let face it, he doesn't follow anything even if he is making the rules for us to follow.

Now we are learning that on top of her 143000$ pension she is also entitled to a 206000$ yearly expense account .Such an incredible waste of taxpayer dollars .

Both pension for failing to complete a contract, and this expense account truly boggles my mind. They must have in the day set up their own conditions.

As a tax payer, I think this needs to be addressed and stop A.S.A.P.
