Teachers and Farmers: The Leaders Needed Today Plan for Tomorrow

Note the themes in this - multitasking, the importance of faith in doing the difficult tasks that need done, the need to plan, to balance strength with compassion, the ability to endure and never lose sight of the harsh fact that the work we do today isn't for ourselves, but for those to follow. Really, this ad's about leadership.

Prescient, this. The kind of leaders we need today are more like teachers and farmers than stern fathers like Stephen Harper or would-be warriors like Rob Ford. Slowly, these are the kinds of leaders we're getting, too, starting with people like Kathleen Wynne.

We reap what we sow - the good choices of today will bear wholesome fruit tomorrow.  That's planning.
