A WILD THOUGHT
By John Merriam
Once the Conservatives were defeated in the October 19th election, I fully expected the PM to step down a few days later. Instead, he announced on election eve that he would step down and asked the party to arrange for an interim leader to be named. The next day, he seemingly inexplicably said that he would retain his seat.
Rona Ambrose is the interim leader of the party and she is apt to hold this position for at least two years, when a new leader will be chosen.
The former PM will of course sit on the front bench of the Official Opposition and he is perfectly suited to comment on the economic policies of the Liberal government. If I were The Dauphin, I would not look forward to receiving those questions.
We know that the former PM’s policies over the past many years were the correct ones. Trudeau is not up to the job and his policies will be the opposite of the Conservatives and will therefore ultimately fail.
Serious cracks in the Liberal armour should be visible for all to see two years from now.
What if……….what if Mr. Harper’s goal is to then seek the leadership of the party again!
It has happened before in Canadian politics and stranger things have happened. What do you think?
