Jack Layton mused about being prime minister on Wednesday. It may have been a mistake but it is not outside the realm of possibility. Strange things can happen in elections when emotions get in the way of clear-headedness.
Let us take Jack up on his challenge and project some of those who might join him in his cabinet.
The Rt. Hon. Jack Layton, PC, MP – Prime Minister and Minister of Constitutional Affairs
The Hon. Thomas Mulcair, PC, MP – Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance
The Hon. Libby Davies, PC, MP – Minister of Foreign Affairs
The Hon. Ryan Cleary, PC, MP – Minister for Inter-Governmental Affairs and Minister Responsible for Newfoundland and Labrador
The Hon. Nathen Cullen, PC, MP – Minister of Natural Resources and Minister Responsible for the Asia-Pacific Gateway
The Hon. Ruth Ellen Brosseau, PC, MP – Minister of Human Resources and Skill Development
The Hon. Jim Koppens, PC, MP – Minister of State for Foreign Affairs (the Americas)
The Hon. Pat Martin, PC, MP – Minister of Industry
The Hon. Linda Duncan, PC, MP – Minister of Western Economic Diversification
Is this what you want Canadian leadership to look like on May 3rd?
