Sheila Copps

Even Sheila Copps tried her best at a Trudeau style exit. Red convertible, smile and a wave. The peace tower in her rearview mirror...No, we are not adding Sheila to the list of Next Face candidates. Not yet anyway.

We are however paying homage to the once feisty Deputy Prime Minister for her excellent epitaph in today's Toronto Sun. Sheila twice aligns her thoughts with "Maybe", our inaugural post on the subject on Martin's defeat.

"...Harper started as a disenchanted Conservative, who helped form the Reform Party under the leadership of Preston Manning. He worked briefly as an assistant to the first Reform MP Deb Grey, then left Ottawa to work with a right-wing protest group called the National Citizens Coalition. For three successive elections, a divided conservative movement meant the Liberals under Prime Minister Jean Chretien secured majority governments.

Frustrated with his party's perennial opposition status, Harper helped put together a plan to reunite the former Reform, which morphed into the Canadian Alliance, and the former Progressive Conservatives. "

I mean really. Given Harper's 'experience', did the Martin camp need anymore fodder? From Deb Grey's assistant to Prime Minister of Canada overnight. I mean really. Four parties in 5 years. Is there a reason they never thought to exploit the obvious?

Sheila goes on to write about Martin's real strength, and what could have been the thrust of a more successful campaign; again alluding to the message in "Maybe"

"...The Liberal message in this election should have been tied to the success of a booming economy. Martin's real strength is the fact that under him, the Canadian economy is doing so well that most citizens want to build on that."

Pass the Patron Sheila. Could you be the Next Face?
