Final cabinet speculation

Mostly certain:
– Prime Minister Stephen Harper
– Flaherty to stay in Finance (confirmed by numerous people in the department)
– Baird moving (confirmed)
– Clement moving
– Guergis moving (family has flown in, and hair appointment booked early AM tomorrow apparently)
– Bernier not in cabinet
– Aglukkaq in cabinet
– Prentice staying in Industry (no indication of a move from bureaucrats or political staffers up until midnight)
– Lunn moving (family has flown in)
– Verner moving
– MacKay stays in defence
– a good number of Secretaries of State named

Responsibly speculative:
– Cannon in foreign affairs (heard this from a high level source on Tuesday night)
– Kenney at CIC
– Nicholson stays in Justice
– Strahl stays at INAC
– Clement in trade
– Baird in transport
– Verner to intergovernmental affairs
– Ambrose to HRSDC
– Shea or Duncan in Fisheries
– Raitt in cabinet
– James Moore promoted

Wildly and so irresponsibly speculative:
– Raitt to get NRCan (doubtful)
– Liberal crosses the floor and enters cabinet (sourced at a high level, but I don’t see it happening. Yet, a number of Liberals staffers have been confirming they’ve heard the same rumour for days)
– Rob Moore in cabinet

    I don't know about the first one on your list. I heard he was thinking of crossing the floor for a shadow cabinet post, and that Bernier was being considered for the top job. Might just be speculation though.

    Hopefully Ablonczy gets Health. Also, how did you find out Guergis has booked a hair appointment? Supreme stalker skills I must say =p haha joking.

    I wouldn't be surprised if she intentionally seeded that rumour herself! I heard that one from a staffer.

    So, will the feminists and their cheerleaders in the MSM–not to mention Jack, Ellie May, and the Libs–congratulate Stephen Harper and the CPC for, first, returning more women than any other party to the HOC and, then, for placing so many women in Cabinet positions?

    Purely rhetorical question, of course. (Dammit all …)

    We're happy here in Niagara that Nicholson has stayed with the Justice portfolio. I thought they might give it to Cannon or another Quebecer to help bring them onside with the youth justice chanegs but this really has been Nichsolsons baby.

    I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to

    say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
