Canadian PM Justin Trudeau Explains Mystery Behind Gender-Balanced Cabinet

During Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s swearing in on Wednesday, a reporter asked him why he thought it was important to have a gender-balanced cabinet of 15 women and 15 men.

Trudeau responded, “Because it’s 2015.”

Which, hey, is really the only response necessary. At this point, it’s getting to be patently ridiculous to have white dudes in charge of everything. Now that Canada is ranked as the freest nation in the world, they certainly have a responsibility to maintain gender parity in their highest offices.

I can’t really say that much else about this, because Trudeau’s response is enough, quite frankly. Besides, I’m way too busy playing with this dreamy Justin Trudeau paper doll over at The Cut.
