The Canadian Cabinet

This is what the Canadian Cabinet looks like:

Minister of Health is a doctor.
Minister of Transport is an astronaut.
Minister of National Defence is a Sikh Veteran.
Minister of Youth is under the age of 45.
Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food is a former farmer.
Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness was a Scout.
Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development was a financial analyst.
Minister of Finance is a successful businessman.
Minister of Justice was a crown prosecutor and is a First Nations leader.
Minister of Sport, and Persons with Disabilities is a visually impaired Paralympian.
Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, and Canadian Coastguard is Inuit.
Minister of Science is a medical geographer with a PhD.

Along with a great diversity of ministers and that 50% of the Cabinet roles are given to women, it is a great testament to the present-day thinking of the Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau. I also think that a similar approach to allocating Cabinet members should be taken by other democracies around the world.
