For anybody who believes that Justin Trudeau is as shallow as the hole in his socks. And Narcissistic. And Dishonest, there is nothing new here.
The whole thing of "First Woman to _____", and "First Indigenous person to _____", and even "First Indigenous Woman to _____" is past its use before date. JWR is naive, self absorbed, focused on "First Indigenous Woman to ____".
The writing was not engaging. And then I did this, and then he did this.
She is a complete failure as a politician. She is shocked that politicians are shallow, narcissistic, dishonest, self-serving. What did she expect. Especially of the Liberal Party of Canada.
This is a great book for people who want to fawn over JWR and do not particularly need a reason.
She is a very intelligent woman but all she seems to care about are members of her own race and to heck with the rest of Canadians. These people are a drain on the taxpayers of this country. They always have been and looks like not much hope fort the future.
I found only parts of this book interesting. There is far too much space given to her family history and life before coming an M.P. The SNC Lavalin pages could easily be condensed into a much more interesting package which I am sure would out sell this book.
Nothing amazing and certainly nothing much beyond what is already in the media. The legalities of the SNC issue are never made clear and I wonder if maybe that’s because JWR never really understood them herself. Odd that it was published in the US.
JWR makes very good points in this book. Everyone knows what a phony Justin Trudeau is.
In fact, in my opinion, the two worst Prime Ministers in Canada are (1) Justin Trudeau and (2) his dad Pierre-Elliott Trudeau before him. Both disasters who have done nothing but divide our great country pitting East against West.
JWR is correct in stating that the Indigenous peoples have been short changed for millennia. I have visited reserves throughout Canada and can attest to that. She is also correct in stating that the current "party system" is deeply flawed. It's not about doing what's best for Canada but what's best for the "party" to get re-elected and stay in power and to hell with what Canada needs.
Where this book falls apart, though, is her constant whining and bitching - and she repeats the same things over and over ad nauseum.
And that's why I'm giving the book a 2 out of 5 stars.
I read the first chapter in order to get the basics of her dealings with the PM on the SNC Lavalin affair. After the first chapter it became overly autobiographical for my purposes, and I returned it to my public library system.
