Team Mulcair

  1. No one is listed for Public Accounts – does David Christopherson keep that role as well as being Deputy Leader?

    • I suspect Treasury Board and PWGSC cover this off.

    • Hoang Mai is listed as Public Revenue which is arguably the closest to Public Accounts but I’ll bet Christopherson will continue chairing PACP because he’s been on the committee for years.

      • National Revenue has absolutely nothing to do with Public accounts. Nothing, zilch, zero! Linda Duncan – Public Works and Government Services – is likely the one who will be lead on Public Accounts Committee

  2. You get a spot, and you get a spot, and you get a spot and you get a spot! 

  3. So from Mulcair on down there I count 78 – yes 78! – members of the Dipper Shadow Cabinet.

    How badly does one have to suck not to get into that not-very-exclusive club?

    • Is this a much larger shadow cabinet than usual, or have I just not seen everyone listed as part of a shadow cabinet before?

      •  In general, a shadow cabinet is modelled after the government cabinet.

  4. Wassup ?  I don’t see any assistant associate deputy parliamentary secretaries !

    •  Only the Conservatives do that!

  5. Um… Borg for digital issues? Fin for fisheries? You can’t make this stuff up.

    •  Masse at Canada-U.S. border seems appropriare… but surely Cash should be at Revenue or Finance?

      •  appropriate!

    •  Borg should have been on Youth Issue or something in that area. Either way, Borg will shine at whatever she does, she is definitely a bright young star in the party. Especially after I saw her fight in the budget for Katimavik
