But she’s not Transgender!

As an astronaut, an engineer and a woman, Julie Payette will make her mark as governor general

Not a Tranny.

Julie Payette is one of 10 Canadians to go to space, and the second Canadian woman to do so. She has degrees in engineering, worked for IBM before joining the Canadian Space Agency, was chief operating officer of the Montreal Science Centre, speaks a half dozen languages, plays the piano and is an accomplished singer.

On Thursday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will introduce her as Canada’s next governor general.

The symbolism of that appointment — officially made by the Queen, whom Trudeau spoke with last week — will not be what some imagined it might be. But the country will soon be officially represented by an accomplished female astronaut and scientist. And that has a symbolic quality all its own.

    Next time a MAN gets appointed Governor General, I expect CBC to specify the fact he’s a MAN and underline all his MANLY accomplishments and wax poetic about the symbolism of appointing a MAN in the position. That’s equality, right?

    • Never happen.

      Did you read the blowjob the CBC gave Justin in that article.

      “But now that she is here, Payette sounds like exactly the sort of governor general one might have expected Trudeau to seek out: having made a name for himself as a feminist and as someone who could explain quantum computing, Trudeau has found a female astronaut to be the next governor general.”

      What horseshit.

        I avoid CBC like the plague on TV but I’ll be particularly careful today because that story will be played up non-stop by the likes of Rosie Barton et al.

        • I never watch CBC if at all possible, the web site is bad enough and I limit my time there.

            The CBC had 3 amazing Comedy shows which was about all i watched . They had a history of killing each one of them and seems to back crap and failures they can pump million$ into to employ people .
            The less successful they are the more money they demand to keep afloat. They don’t want to be successful.

            It’s like a 22 year Son living at home that tries to get fired from every job so they can never be successful to move out and buy their own food and pay rent.

            Why do you tell us this lie Gary.

            The CBC has ZERO amazing shows and anyone who says otherwise is either a Marxist or a person who’s judgement can not be trusted.

            Thought experiment: look at a month of CBC programming and see how many hours you would spend watching.

          • Gary

            I sad HAD 3 shows. That was back in the late 80’s and early 90’s .
            The people from those shows went on to be successful where the CBC saw Diversity take over and they had to lower the mean IQ target for viewers on top of the ESL crowd .
            Comedy is now candy coated hatred for the minority bigots and simpletons where the USA keeps being attacked as are non-Liberals.

          Fuck, I hate that gap toothed bitch.

        I was hoping Justin Bieber would get the nod.

    • Frances

      Such as, for instance, Peter Manbridge? I thought he was in line for the post.

    So what qualifications does she have, when it comes to knowledge of the role she must play in the constitution, or the military? Other than the fact she is a woman, and was part of the space program that millions of taxpayers dollars was wasted upon. But then in part, it was about the petty little tyrant Trudeau getting rid of Harper’s blue ribbon panel that was supposed to choose the person.

      It’s 2017.

      At least she is a scientist and has a logical mind. Let’s hope her mind leads her to the inexorable conclusion that Trudeau is as dumb as a box of rocks, and that her skill set is very useful in her role.

      • A Hamilton Guy

        When she is talking to turdope will he give her a headache?

        • Tooth&Claw

          I have no doubt he will. Good looks don’t paper over intellectual deficits.

    • John

      She has hair just like Justin, so what could go wrong!

    • Frances

      What qualifications have most of the appointees to the post had with respect to either the constitution or the military? I suggest she probably has some knowledge of the military, and that she is bright enough to pick up on the constitutional aspects. We could, after all, have had another “celebrity” media personality as our new GG.

    I wonder what BLM will have to say about that?

        There were no black astronauts back then. They refused to join NASA because they were damned to have to say, “Yes NASA. No NASA.”

    I was suprised. I thought he would appoint a person from Pakistan

    GG David Johnson was on the U of Waterloo Board during Mohamad Elmasry’s jew -hating rant that everyone in Israel over 19 is a valid target for hamas to kill. Johnson defended Elmasry’s stance to deem those over 19 legal to murder in by Hamas suicide bombers or rockets.

    Jump to the 01:55 mark and hear his own words.
    Johnson watched Justin grow up as his Cottage was next to the Trudeau’s retreat home in the country .
    The CBC didn’t care , nor did the STAR . Now they both love Omar Khadr while Omar AlGhabra is the PS for Trudeau and a well known Jew-hating pro-Whahabi saudi Sunni. Omar helped the Hamas-linked CAIR and Sheema Khan with Maher Ara’s $400,000,000.00 extortion Lawsuit against canada for unproven torture .
    i always thought that Muslims would be insulted for being treated like 10th century knuckle dragging savages that we must have pity on and not expect them to live by our Moral standards for crimes like Wife-beating, pedophilia , honour killing and murdering gays.

    1400 years in inbreeding produces the Khadr’s and Elmasry .

    Yeah, but can she bake a cherry pie?

    That’s all I want from y G.G.!

      I wanna a samich, bitch!

  • simus1

    She is not a quantum computer expert like Shiny Pony, just an astro-n-aunt.
    Did no one trip over this shortcoming ?
    How will they be able to converse face to face about Canada’s many challenges without using interpreters?

  • WalterBannon

    The only thing I know about her is that Justine has picked her.

    That is enough to know that she is the wrong person for the role.
