And the critics are...
-Bob Rae, Michael Ignatieff, and Dominic LeBlanc are nowhere to be seen. Ruby Dhalla, however, is the Labour critic. I'll let my readers connect the dots on this one.
-Scott Brison replaces John McCallum in the VERY important Finance critic position. After watching Brison beat up on Flaherty at a CBC forum during the election, I really like this choice.
-In another good move, Gerard Kennedy lands in Industry. While he's better associated with social issues, Kennedy made innovation and enterprise a key plank of his last election campaign and has been lecturing at Ryerson on this topic since then.
-Marc Garneau gets Science and Technology. Can you say "typecast"?
-Justin Trudeau and most of the newcomers land associate critic roles.
-Conspicuously absent are Scott Andrews, Jimmy K and Joe Volpe.
