<HTML>Five U of O alumni take leadership roles in federal cabinet

OTTAWA, Wednesday, January 16 - Five of the 39 ministers and
secretaries of state in the federal cabinet are graduates of the University of
Ottawa Faculty of Law.

The list includes John Manley (common law 1976), deputy prime minister
and minister responsible for infrastructure and Crown corporations; Allan
Rock (common law 1971), Industry; Martin Cauchon (droit civil 1984),
Justice and Attorney General; Paul DeVillers (common law 1970),
Secretary of State for Amateur Sport and deputy government leader in the
House of Commons; and Denis Paradis (droit civil 1975), Secretary of
State for Latin America, Africa and la Francophonie.

"We both felt a sense of pride and honour when we learned of the selection
of our graduates to lead the federal government. The University of Ottawa
has never been closer to the seat of power in the federal government," said
the deans of the two sections of the Faculty, Louis Perret (droit civil) and
Bruce Feldthusen (common law).

The University of Ottawa is the lagest bilingual university in North America,
and is ranked second in Ontario for graduate programs, co-operative
education, and research funding. The university offers over 26,000 students
the opportunity to study in the heart of Canada's political and high-tech
capital.

If you want your next generation to go to political career, send them to study at University of Ottawa. The only reason for this is that it is the only bilingual university in Canada. It is not because of its quality of education, to be frank!

But, wait. Who knows what will be happening in 10 years? When Quebec separates sometime eventually, French probably won't be an official language in Canada. At that time, maybe Chinese/English may become the official bilingual languages.

I don't think so. OU student does not have to speak French. Even Manley is not that great in French.I would say maybe because the politicians may get paid too low and no real talent would persue this careeer.

How low is too low to you? If you can earn as much as a minister in Canda(around $160,000 CAN and 25% tax free), you are a genius, and we all are proud of you, Man.

-> I believe MP's salary just increase to 100,000 a few years ago, a third of the salary is tax free. It's not that much. A lawyer can make more.
