Dominic LeBlanc wants his close friend Justin Trudeau’s job

Recommended Posts


Behind the scenes, the plot thickens in regards to the future leadership of the Liberal Party. We need only to consider what Public Safety Minister Dominic LeBlanc, a very close friend of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, is up to.
A former Liberal cabinet minister met with Mr. LeBlanc recently and they discussed plans, I’m told, for Mr. LeBlanc to run to succeed Mr. Trudeau as party leader and become prime minister, should he step down.
Few know Mr. Trudeau better than Mr. LeBlanc, who was first elected in 2000. They’ve been pals since boyhood when Mr. LeBlanc’s father, Roméo LeBlanc, was in Pierre Trudeau’s cabinet, and he sometimes babysat Justin, four years younger.
At the meeting, which also included Kevin Fram, a long-time LeBlanc supporter, the cabinet minister wanted assurance from Mr. LeBlanc that he was prepared to put in the arduous work involved in a leadership campaign. He got that commitment.
They talked of a problem Mr. LeBlanc would have: the shrapnel he’s been hit with for being so tightly associated with the Prime Minister and his policies. The cabinet minister advised him to prepare his own vision for the country and give party members a clear idea of why he wants to become prime minister.

It's starting in earnest. He is not the only one but we're starting to see some serious work going into who the next leader will be.

I dont' think freeland has a hope in hell but we've got leblanc as an almost sure-to-enter,  carney has been aggressively floating balloons, a few others are starting to make their moves.

It'll be interesting to see that campaign when it comes.

Freeland, Freeland, Freeland . . . . perfect man for the job!

If the job you're referring to is "Boat anchor" then sure.  :)

She's way too tainted.  If she's got a brain she won't even try.  So she'll probably try.
