Jim Flaherty Replaced?
Rumour has it that there will be another Cabinet shuffle this summer, and the Globe and Mail is speculating that Finance Minister Jim Flaherty is among the likely candidates to lose their jobs. It is possible that Jim would like to step down as Finance Minister, given that it is the most challenging portfolio in cabinet and he is now 60 years old. Personally I think that Mr. Flaherty has been a fantastic Finance Minister and I would like him to stay in his current job assuming he's still willing to shoulder that responsibility. Do you think it is time to replace Jimmy? Our economy has weathered this great recession better than 95% of the countries on Earth, and Jim Flaherty deserves some credit for that.
