With the Prime Minister set to announce his new cabinet some time this week, the only sure non-incumbent consensus pick is that Maxime Bernier will be given a seat at the cabinet table. Today's poll question; what cabinet job would be best for Mr. Bernier? His skill set would be best suited to an economic portfolio, and given his popularity in Quebec he deserves a significant responsibility. The Treasury Board is currently vacant, and Maxime has to be one of the names being considered. Though it is more likely that somebody like James Moore who has more time served in cabinet would get that kind of promotion. I don't expect a lot of changes, with probably about 75% of ministers keeping their current jobs. There doesn't need to be a major shake-up, because we have many talented ministers sitting in cabinet already. Foreign Affairs is open, but Maxime already had his shot at that one and accidentally left his office work at his girlfriend's apartment.
Even Martha Hall Findlay likes Chris Alexander for Foreign Affairs. It was odd to see her endorse the man who took down Mark Holland.
