New Cabinet

The Prime Minister unveiled his new cabinet today, which is newsworthy because it means journalists will now have to find something else to speculate about.

Also newsworthy about the cabinet is it's size, I mean in terms of population the cabinet is now the fifth largest city in Canada.

In fact, it's so large its meetings will now take place in the Rogers' Centre.

Anyway, here's a partial list of the new cabinet:

Marjory Lebreton, Minister in Charge of coming up with new excuses for not reforming the Senate

Bev Oda, Minister Responsible for Sticking it to all you critics out there!

John Baird, Minister in charge of foreign relations, and if those foreigners better like it or else.

Tony Clement, President of Ensuring Canada's  Fake Lake needs.

Jason Kenney, Commander-in-Chief of government’s Very Ethnic Legions

 Joe Oliver, Minister in charge of Being from Toronto

Julian Fantino, Associate Minister in charge of getting Peter MacKay his coffee

Maxime Bernier, Minister of Actually talking like a conservative

Lynne Yelich, Minister of State for Pork

Gary Goodyear, Minister of (Prime Minister will dream up some important-sounding title later)

Should be a great four years of big government.

"Maxime Bernier, Minister of Actually talking like a conservative"

Which is why he's been slotted to a post that shouldn't even exist.

Same crap, different day...5 of 6 seats from kebec in cabinet, just sickening. 3 clowns to the senate, $$$... More kebec butt kissing, well done Harper...

Its pretty simple really. Quebec did not vote for the Conservatives and does not deserve to be over-represented in cabinet. This is pure BS...just sick. Only 6 seats from Kebec, don’t forget that Harper. We outside kebec gave you the majority, not Quebec!!!

So tell us why Kebec is over-represented again??? Well come on , lets hear the spin.

I agree this cabinet is too big and sends the wrong message. Given the power of the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) there are probably only a handful of ministers who have any real influence on policy. Cabinet ministers get a large salary boost, a limousine, a private driver and the ability to hire more political staff all on the Canadian taxpayers back. If Harper wanted to show leadership this is the place he should have cut first.
