Good luck and good wishes …

screen shot 2019-01-10 at 12.54.13So, the Hon Scott Brison has resigned from cabinet and says that he will not seek re-election this fall.

I wish him well and I hope for all the best for him and his family.

I will not judge, yet, his role in the firing and, I suspect, politically motivated prosecution of Vice Admiral Frank Norman … our courts will speak on that and I trust our judicial system. Nor will I speculate on the notion that he might think that Justin Trudeau is headed for defeat in 2019 and that his own seat could be in danger … although I doubt the latter point.

I recall Mr Brison as a Progressive Conservative MP and potential leader; I was sorry when he defected to the Liberals because, except for the fact that he, personally, clearly felt very uncomfortable in the then existing mix of Reform and Progressive Conservative elements that made up the new party, I always felt that he was more conservative than most are Liberal MPs.
