Ken Dryden

So Ken Dryden is going to run for the Liberals. Very interesting. I guess this will give Air Farce some material for jokes but appart from that, it's hard to comment much on it.

What I'll say is that I'm fully behind this move. A lot of people may write it off as "Schwartzetschwhstatzcnneggzhscger North" but there are a few differences to consider:

1. Dryden is running to be a backbench MP or maybe a Parliamentary Secretary. Not governor of a state the size of Canada.

2. Dryden is a smart guy.

It'll be interesting to see how he does. I'd like to see him get a minor cabinet post (Sport?) and see how he handles it.

  • Thanks for the link - I'll recipricate soon.

    As for Dryden, the guy's a published author, about more than just hockey. He's run the Maple Leafs operations for a while, so he has to have some sort of business sense. He took a year from hockey to finish his LLB. I don't think anyone's going to mistake him for Conan. But cabinet, even junior cabinet, is probably a term away. Look for him to land in something a little more junior - and I wouldn't be surprised if he's requested specifically to stay away from anything related exclusively to sport. Sec. of State for Youth, maybe?

  • During consecutive louis vuitton bags , Jane Birkin advised what she advised to be the absolute bag. louis handbags she wasn’t far off. The Birkin bag was an Damier Azur hit and is one of the alone handbags that in fact holds Damier Canvas or increases in value.
