The only thing more fun than a cabinet shuffle is speculating about a cabinet shuffle. The Star, Huffington PostCBC and Postmedia have your first guesses, including mentions of Peter MacKay, Bev Oda, Julian Fantino, Christian Paradis, John Duncan, Peter Kent, Vic Toews, Maxime Bernier, Denis Lebel, Rob Nicholson, Jason Kenney, James Moore, John Baird, Chris Alexander, Michelle Rempel, Candice Hoeppner, Kellie Leitch, James Rajotte and Greg Rickford.

That leaves just 144 Conservatives (excluding the Prime Minister) left to be speculated about between now and whenever Mr. Harper goes to Rideau. Actually, 145 if you include the stuffed dog that participated in last week’s C-38 vote marathon.

  1. I’m not sure there’s enough talent there to speculate about….more like names in a hat, flip a coin etc….

  2. “That leaves just 144 Conservatives…145 if you include the stuffed dog that participated in last week’s C-38 vote marathon.”

    How ever could we tell if Harper shuffled his cabinet? They all behave like stuffed dogs.

  3. I read cabinet shuffle article yesterday – is there reason to believe PM Harper has plans to rotate his paper tiger cabinet or is this just idle speculation by journos who need something to write about this summer other than Justin?

    Rempel is an attractive happy warrior, she will rise high in Con party I reckon as long as she doesn’t do something colossally stupid.

    • If history is any guide, she could, in fact, do something colossally stupid and still rise high in the Con party. She has many role models.

  4. Why on earth does it matter which empty shell of a puppet represents which portfolio?

    I don’t even imagine the barrage of backbenchers care either. They know the view isn’t really that different from the front benches of the likes of harper’s cabinet. Just throw in a new row of bobbleheads, and voila, new cabinet.

  5. Who are all those people listed in Wherry’s first para? Anyone who counts?

  6. Conservative pals in Ottawa tell me Chris Alexander is bored being the parliamentary mouthpiece for Peter Mackay, who he believes (not without some justification) to be his intellectual inferior. If he isn’t in the Cabinet by mid-term, he will cash in and go into private sector.
