Coming Of The Lord?

While the resignation of the leader of a caucus of one in New Brunswick is not newsworthy in itself, I think most people can see the potential implications.

With his majority of one, now a majority of two, the door is open for a jump to the federal scene should Stephen Harper lose the upcoming election.


  • "While the resignation of the leader of a caucus of one in New Brunswick is not newsworthy in..."

    jeez. Spoken like a true calgarian.. ;-)

  • If Lord wants to be PM, he should resign and announcing that he is running in the next federal. Running from within caucus will be his only hope of getting Alliance votes.

  • It will be interesting to see who the so-cons put up as their candidate(s) in the race to come. They will probably want to put up someone against Mackay and Lord.

    Perhaps Jason Kenney or Ted Morton (after he loses the race in Alberta)? Any thoughts?

  • Jason Kenney's name gets thrown around an awful lot - I tend to think he'd be the candidate of choice for a lot of the old alliance crowd.

    I've also heard talk of Stockwell Day, but even the Conservatives wouldn't be that stupid, would they?

  • I've heard rumours that Stockwell Day is considering quitting federal politics relatively soon.

    As for him running again for leader: there really can't be anyone stupid enough to work on his campaign, can there be? Other than Cheryl Gallant and Ezra Levant perhaps.

  • Actually, winning the seat would make it a majority of three.

    Now here's the kicker! In all likelihood the Grits will win the seat because they have, by far, a better candidate. This is the same riding that elected Elsie Wayne time after time and Ed Doherty has probably examined the eyes of more than half the voters in the riding.

    Who said that Lord wasn't a risk-taker?

  • Very worthwhile data, lots of thanks for this post.
