A few quick thoughts on the @fordnation cabinet and swearing in today #onpoli 1/x
Very strong and competent group. This is the type of cabinet you assemble when you face serious challenges (NAFTA/fiscal mess) #onpoli 2/x
In a good way, no real wildcards here. This is a group of people who will succeed because they’re legislative veterans or come with real life experiences. #onpoli 3/x
4 big names to focus on: @celliottability @GregRickford @VicFedeliMPP @RodPhillips01 For G= Hydro One mess. For R = carbon tax unwind. Huge priorities. For C = confidence as a #2. For V = obviously impressed with his time as critic + interim Leader. #onpoli 4/x
The outdoor swearing was a symbolic but important demonstration that For the People isn’t just a campaign slogan, it’s the central operating principle of this government. #onpoli 5/x
Who do I think will most impress? Hard to narrow down. But watch for @MonteMcNaughton — Big portfolio and a young, competent and energetic (conservative) minister. #onpoli 6/x
Also watch for: @lparkpc and @Sflecce — Two next gen rising stars. I expect both will be full fledged ministers before the four years is up. #onpoli 7/x
Today felt different. The political correctness from @Kathleen_Wynne was gone. It felt accessible and businesslike. @fordnation has a big mandate to do things differently and he clearly is on day one. #onpoli 8/x
Finally, in four years @fordnation should be able to use the same 🎶For the People🎶 campaign song. If he can’t, it’s because he lost is way. Let that be a strong measure of success. #onpoli 9/9
