Which indicates he had the opportunity, time and funds to attend higher education. After years of higher education he went into public office. No real experience at employment (except as a part-time substitute teacher, appearing in a movie, etc) no matter how often he attempts to appear as a person of the people with his shirt sleeves rolled up.

There was the rumor, that Mr. Butts wrote his exam at McGill, but no proof that I know of.

The only way I can think of would be a fake university ID card, but even that is a stretch.

I am not disputing you, but does McGill or any other university check Photo ID for every exam sit?

While being "well versed in drama production" will certainly come in handy in the House of Commons the following might be more useful.
"Trudeau has a bachelor of arts degree in literature from McGill University and a bachelor of education degree from the University of British Columbia.
From 2002 to 2004, he studied engineering at the École Polytechnique de Montréal, a part of the Université de Montréal.He also started a master's degree in environmental geography at McGill University, before suspending his program to seek public office.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Justin_Trudeau#University_and_early_career"

I wasn't necessarily singling him out, being well versed in drama productions can equally be applied to any of them if their behavior is any indication.

What do the last several posts have to do with Matthew Fisher's tweet about his ideal sized military?  Or with "Military Current Affairs & News" for that matter?  Seems that the off-hand comments about the PM should be more in the political threads, though the slagging of political figures was what got heated threads closed back a couple of months and warnings about similar conduct in the future.  Could the same be said about some of the posts currently in this thread . . .  "rumour . . . no proof"?  Maybe a clean-up of this thread is in order.

So I guess he would share that distinction with our 22nd Prime Minister, who once he got his degree in economics(and to be noted, not a PHD, nor do I think he wrote any peer reviewed papers) and joined the National Citizens Coalition, never having actually worked as a economist. He did however, work for a oil company, although it seems like it was as a mail clerk.

I agree and on that note, back on track folks.

I don't want to hear another word on here about The Hairspray King or Curly Sue  ;D

ideal military? Just contact the galactic empire. Should be some nice surplus imperial equipment for Canada to use
perhaps
-8 x Star destroyers
-32 x AT-AT walkers
-150 x TIE fighters
-60 x AT-ST Scout Walkers (yes P Res, you will have a vehicle)
-1 x death star...nope, not available
-50 x Probe Droids

Sound decent?

The google machine tells me 1 star destroyer has more infantry (storm troopers) and more regular force soldiers than all of Canada.

Just remember, Canadians in WWI were the original Imperial storm troopers.  Vimy!
