The Prime Minister has selected a non-partisan appointment to the position of Governor General that is getting praise from a number of prominent Liberals. There had been speculation that the PM would appoint a partisan Tory to block future coalition building attempts, but instead he has appointed the most qualified candidate. Well done, and the announcement was made the evening before the release of new poll numbers which have the Liberals below the "thin red Dion line" at 23%.
The CBC has been asking the question "what do you think you think of the new GG" and they just showed a selection of e-mails that were all negative and when they cut back to the correspondent, he had a giant smile on his face. One even accused the Harper government of not extending Jean's term because she is a successful black francophone. This is what the guy at the CBC chose from the mailbag, and he was quite enjoying himself.
All I really care about is where the new GG stands on coalition governments, with and without the Bloc's inclusion.
