Company boards must have three women
Companies should have 3 women directors or face delisting

Let's say a spot opens up on the board of a company and the most qualified candidate is a female. Obviously, they would not pick her and risk the company's performance because rich white men hate women so much. That's why so few women serve on corporate boards in Ontario. Fight the patriarchy!

Quote:The giant Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan wants the province’s securities regulator to require all public companies to have at least three women on their boards, saying a voluntary option is unlikely to have much impact.

Teachers outlined its bold proposal in a letter submitted Friday to the Ontario Securities Commission, saying companies that fail to have at least three female directors after a transition period – which it suggests setting at 2020 – should be delisted from the Toronto Stock Exchange.
