As Trudeau blames Ethics Watchdog ..
ETHICS WATCHDOG BITES BACK AT TRUDEAU & MORNEAU
DEAD MAN WALKING
Whether he's pushed out, quits, or is demoted, Crazy Bill Morneau is 'Dead Man Walking' (#DMW) as Finance Minister. The guy's imploded, his credibility in tatters, a laughingstock. Inexplicably MIA from the House of Commons this week, not even Justin Trudeau trusts him to answer questions in public anymore, and other cabinet ministers (Transport Minister Marc Garneau) are being enlisted to announce his marquee legislation. Let's face it, it's all over but the crying. If Crazy Bill had any sense of honour, dignity and self-worth, he'd resign now. And he may. But, then, who to replace him with ? One name bandied about in key watering holes within blocks of the Prime Minister's Office: Scott Brison. Yes, Brison, currently biding his time as Treasury Board President and not unfamiliar with the wicked ways of Bay Street. The longtime MP is said to be bored out of his gourd at TB and anxious for greater challenges on the front benches. Other names suggested are mired in issues that would work against their candidacies. Chrystia Freeland, for instance, the self-promotion addict currently bombing with the Nafta file. Or Public Security Minister and former Finance Minister Ralph Goodale, of all people. But that would be one of those 'Back to the future' moves likely kiboshed by Trudeau's braintrust. But back to Brison and a move to Finance, which would domino a fairly significant cabinet shuffle encompassing several important ministries such as Fisheries, Heritage, International Trade, Veterans Affairs, and Defence. The thinking here is the move of many would water down the loss of Crazy Bill. Besides, some of those who would move likely need to be moved. Bill, it is suggested, may be currently bivouac'd in his fabulous French villa in Provence until a decision on his fate is made, hoping that nobody asks if he's directed and profited from any of his non-blind-trust assets since becoming FinMin.
