Just visiting, soon

Yeah, because making a rich, out-of-touch white guy elitist who lives in another country your leader always works out so well.

“Liberal insiders looking at Mark Carney as Trudeau’s successor”

    Mhm. Rolling my eyes at the prospect of a millionaire financier swooping in to save us all. Short of JWR or JP as leader, I don’t know whether I have much inclination to bother considering the red option anymore.

  2. the real Sean says:

    Exactly my thought. Although I like seeing Liberals talking about the next leader just before an election campaign. It shows an acceptance of reality.

  3. Fred from BC says:

    Part of me wants to believe that this is a ‘false flag’ scenario, and that the opposition actually planted this rumor…but another part knows it is true. They’ve learned nothing.

  4. The brains on the outs are supposed to be more heavily sharpened than those within. This sure proves that…

  5. Christian says:

    My question: why the hell would Carney want this gig? Dealing with one shit-show (Brexit) surely is enough???

  6. Chris says:

    Aren’t Liberals too “woke” these days to even consider another white guy leader? Or is the “wokeness” to be swept out the back door along side Justin and his socks?

    • The Doctor says:

      There’s always been this strange dualism and denial in the Liberal DNA: for example, claiming to be champions of all things progressive and diverse while giving us a lineup of rich, privileged white guys as leader: Trudeau Sr. (scion of a gas station empire), John Turner, Iggy, Paul Martin and of course Selfie Boy himself.

  7. Gord says:

    Being white, male and rich shouldn’t disqualify anyone from the leadership any more than being Indigenous, female, or low income.

    Agreed, though, on the elitism and being out of touch. If the Liberals would elect themselves a leader from outside the Laurentian Elite / Toronto-Ottawa-Montreal axis I’d get interested real fast, but sadly the likelihood of that ever happening is slim to nil.

    • Doug Brown says:

      Preserving the privilege of the Laurentian Elite (ex. protecting sectors like media, finance, dairy and aerospace) is the core of the Liberal Party’s mission statement. It has the divine right to control government and centralize economic decisions.
