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

Tom Jackson. He fits the male-female alternation. He's native.

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.

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
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.

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.

Trudeau says the vetting process needs improvement? So we need a better process than 'hired by accident'?
Once you hire a GG, the GG gets to hire her best friend as SGG and work together as a torture tag team? The TTT.

After-all the only selection criteria was that the GG and SGG would be female which makes sense to liberals. Since THIS is official government policy, and Payette's employees were liberal, they should be forced to endure the torture let alone complain about it as proof-of-concept for how hiring on gender alone is not a good idea. (just kidding)

The whole scandal is not just rare, it is thoroughly unprecedented. The male who put her there demonstrates complete inability to hire the right people for any job.

Liar liar pants on fire. Justin Trudeau tells porkies to his gullible boot lickers.

Julie Payette did not undergo a thorough background check before Prime Minister Justin Trudeau appointed her to serve as Canada’s 29th governor-general in 2017, according to three sources with knowledge of the vetting process.

Officials in the Prime Minister’s Office did not reach out to former employers of Ms. Payette to determine her suitability for the viceregal role or talk to former colleagues who would have had knowledge of her history as a manager, the sources say.


Mr. Trudeau and PMO officials were struck by her celebrity status from the moment former prime minister Jean Chrétien suggested the onetime astronaut be named to take over from David Johnston as governor-general, the sources said.

The Globe and Mail is not identifying the sources because they are not authorized to speak about the vetting of Ms. Payette, who resigned on Thursday after an independent review found that she and her deputy – long-time friend Assunta Di Lorenzo – bullied and verbally abused staff at Rideau Hall.

On Friday, in his first public comments on the unprecedented resignation, the Prime Minister insisted that Ms. Payette went through a proper background check.

“For all high-level appointments, there is a rigorous vetting process that was followed in this case,” Mr. Trudeau told reporters.
“Obviously, we will continue to look at that vetting process to ensure that it is the best possible process as we move forward.”

Reality is IF dingle nuts would have followed the current vetting procedures, there would likely have not been this screw up. How can you defend someone that is so full of himself.

Once again he can not accept the fact he failed, if there is nothing wrong with the system why does he think he can make it better. I would make it better by utilizing it!

Don't worry about Payette. She will get nearly 150K per year for life as a pension. She's an astronaut so send her and Mr. Sunny Ways into space.

The GG position needs to be deleted.
