Not only did new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is a self-proclaimed feminist, deliver on his campaign promise to elect a cabinet that was half women, but he's also appointed a cabinet that reflects the diversity of the country, which is a beautiful thing.

Trudeau described his cabinet as extraordinary during a press conference yesterday, and I have to agree. From an astronaut and a member battling breast cancer to a Nobel laureate and a cabinet member with a "perfectly twirly moustache," what's not to love?

In fact, Canadians have every reason to feel proud and even more than a little bit smug.
