Here’s a quick question: How many women have served as a provincial premier in Canada?
Now here’s a harder question: How many of them have been re-elected as premier?
The answer to the first question is eight. The answer to the second is just one, and she and her re-elected minority government lasted barely one month before losing a non-confidence vote and being tossed out of power.
All of the former female premiers were well-liked and respected when they first took office. But all were hugely unpopular when they were forced out as premier a few years — and in some cases just months — later.
It must be true if the Star says so!
