A Powerful Image of a Powerful Woman

"Wind in his Hair"
from the movie "Dances with Wolves"

I hope readers will forgive me if I wax poetic about the top photo of former Attorney General of Canada, Jody Wilson-Raybould.  The photo of Jody reminds me of the character in my favourite movie of all time, "Dances with Wolves", the character of the Lakota warrior, "Wind in his Hair" (Phehin Othate).

Watch the short video clip from "Dances with Wolves" above and see if the character of Phehin Othate is not similar to JWR, both in fierce determination and her national impact.

Now that they have thrown her under the proverbial bus ,I hope it is not the last of this brave and honest woman ,that we will see in Canadian politics.We could sure stand for more people like her, representing the people of Canada in parliament .

I don't think we've heard the last of JWR and/or this saga.
