Job Vacancy – no experience required

Joan Cook retired from the senate on October 6. 

The Chretien-era appointee hit the magic age to retire from what used to be known as the Antechamber to the Kingdom of Heaven.  Used to be the only way most senators left the job and its lovely salary was to die.

That means there is a vacancy from Newfoundland and Labrador just waiting to be filled by Stephen Harper.

Who will get it?

There’s a good question.

Rex Murphy please

If I was Harper I'd pick John Efford or Brian Tobin, just to piss WIlliams off.

But really, you could pick the Moon Man for all the difference it would make.

Loyola Hearn?
Loyola Sullivan?
Trevor Taylor?

Of course, if the objective is to get under the Taoseach's skin, PM Harper could appoint Roger Grimes.

Ward, you stole my idea!

It will be Hearn.

Senator Westcott?

If Steve wanted to put something up Danny's nose, that's the appointment to make.

Surely, if Danny wanted to mess with Harper's mind, he would hold an election for Senator.
