Cabinet Shuffle this week
« on: July 16, 2018, 10:16:54 »
Anyone think our Defence Minister may be shuffled?

Should he be shuffled?

Who would you replace him with?

Anyone think Mr Leslie would be a good replacement? ;D

Heck no... it's the first time things have made sense (because a Reservist is finally running the show  :sarcasm:) :)

No to Leslie. He cost me a thousand dollars!  :whistle:

There is only one shuffle that will have any meaning, and it will occur some time after next October.

I think Harjit Sajjan has done an ok job.  I met him this year and he seems like a nice guy who actually listens to you when you talk to him. 

I don't think he gets shuffled and I certainly wouldn't want Leslie to replace him.  The last thing the CAF needs is another O'Connor.

I think that having former military members as defence ministers is a bad idea in the long run. I'd rather the minister have an understanding of international geopolitics and what militaries bring to the table. I feel that former military members bring their environmental bias with them and it colours their decision making process. (despite 50 years of unification we are still rather tribal)

I know that I would make a horrible defence minister because I would focus all of our energies on the RCN and Maritime Air! ;D
