Breaking News: Michael Ignatieff-new Foreign Affairs Minister under Harper?
Okay kidding. But there was a vote in Parliament on a Bloc motion on the Afghanistan mission. The Bloc motion required that the Government must put the Afghanistan mission extension to a vote in the Parliament. NDP voted with the Bloc but Michael Ignatieff and the Liberals solidly voted with the government. There was a panel discussion on Power & Politics of CBC and Tom Flanagan of the University of Calgary quipped that Ignatieff would make a great Foreign Affairs minister under Harper. By golly I totally agree with Mr. Flanagan on this one. There is a possibility that Peter Mackay may leave the Harper cabinet and who is best to step in since Ignatieff not only agrees with Harper but is a step ahead of him for supporting the Afghanistan war, mission extension and in the past supporting the Iraq war when he was an American.
