Cornwall ON – Liberal MP will be in a familiar position when Parliament returns. Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff has shuffled his shadow cabinet and appointed Mr. Brison as his finance critic.
Mr. Brison served in the role for the Conservatives while they were in opposition before crossing the floor to join the Liberal party in 2003.
He replaces John McCallum who moves to become the Transportation and Infrastructure critic.
Brison wasted no time in signalling that he means to go for the jugular in an attempt to change that.
“I look forward to the role,” he said Tuesday. “It’s a target-rich environment. This government has been wasteful with the public purse and out of touch with the real needs of Canadians.”
In other moves Ralph Goodale becomes Deputy Leader, Ottawa MP David McGuinty becomes House Leader where he can tangle with long time foe John Baird; Martha Hall Findlay becomes the Trade critic.
It should be an interesting session of Parliament indeed. What do you think Canada? You can post your comments below.
