Oh the Times they are a Changing!!

Oh the Times they are a Changing!! 
And for the better I am happy to say!!

I feel so hopeful after the cabinet that Justin Trudeau chose. Some wonderful choices that will make a very strong Canada and help begin to repair the destruction and damage that Harper did.

You should take a minute and look at all the great photos and see the events that occurred on this historic day. Oh the times they are a changing- for the better I believe. I am so hopeful.

New Canadian PM Justin Trudeau Just Showed the World How You Treat Women in Politics

"Justin Trudeau, arguably the world's new favorite prime minister was sworn in as Canada's 23rd leader on Wednesday morning and announced a new cabinet that looks radically different from the one under his conservative predecessor, Stephen Harper. Arriving hand-in-hand with his wife, Sophie Grégoire, at Rideau Hall in Ottawa by foot, breaking the nearly decade-long conservative tradition of ministers arriving aboard limousines, Trudeau signaled what many were hoping for: a fresh new era in Canadian politics.

Trudeau had vowed to design a cabinet with equal gender representation, and he delivered on the promise.  A full list of the cabinet shows that 15 out of 30 new cabinet members are female. Most noteworthy is his decision to assign Jody Wilson-Raybould, a native woman, as the new minister of justice. This is the first time a native person has ever been assigned to that role. Given the lack of accountability and attention the missing and murdered indigenous women in Canada have received over the years, Trudeau's decision to appoint Wilson-Raybould to lead the justice department is more than symbolic — it could be a game-changer."

This song could mean a lot of things but to me it's a warning and it's about change and I believe it's about out with the old and in with the new. Good things are coming...there could be some bad but we are on a much better path than we were.  Oh the Times they are a Changing!!

Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'
Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin'
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'
Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside ragin'
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'
Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don't criticize
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is rapidly agin'
Please get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'
The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is rapidly fadin'
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'
