A few days ago, Chris, my sister Nazia and I went to one of our favourite places on this planet, the beautiful Riverdale Farm. The farm has featured on the blog before here and here.
This is an "action" shot of me telling Chris exactly what I think every politician in this country needs to do ... you can read more about my career lessons below.
A neon yellow caterpillar, totally on trend.
Black Blouse: Pink Peony || Floral Pants: Primark from Amsterdam, gift from mom || Necklace: Jacob || Wedge Heels from Bata || Hoop Earrings: Saskatoon.
Ok if I could reorganize the political process (please refer to the "action" shot above) - politicians would be elected for much longer terms. Let's say 8 years.
At least 2 of those years would be spent working in other forms of public service.
6 months working as a nurse.
6 months as a police officer.
6 months as a teacher at a gradeschool or highschool.
6 months at a zoo or a farm, like the beautiful Riverdale farm.
This is REAL work. Hard work. We've got lots of academics and lawyers and businessmen, who I also respect, running for political office. But these kinds of jobs, where it's so physical, and demanding, and meaningful, I think would give our elected officials an appreciation and a broader perspective on what we are all trying to do together.
What do you guys think?
Thank you for visiting
