I expect that the three Liberal leadership hopefuls—Michael Ignatieff, Bob Rae and Dominic LeBlanc—will be given senior cabinet portfolios in a coalition government. If I’m correct then, again, Canada will be the loser.
The cabinet is expected to have 24 seats, of which, at least, three will belong to ministers focusing on their party’s leadership race.
Here Canada stands facing the most severe economic crisis in decades, and three of the most senior cabinet ministers will have their attention focused elsewhere.
Oh well, that’s good news for the dimwitted Stéphane Dion and the separatist-supporting Jack Layton, they’ll be able to have their way in all the critical debates around the cabinet table.
Oh, Canada, we pray for you.
