Thoughts on C-32 committee members from the Conservative Party of Canada.

Of the 12 members of the C-32 committee, six of them were from the Conservative party of Canada. This included chair Gordon Brown (Leeds—Grenville, ON). Three members were there for almost all meetings: Mike Lake (Edmonton—Mill Woods—Beaumont, AB), Dean Del Mastro (Peterborough, ON), and Peter Braid (Kitchener—Waterloo, ON). While the other members included Sylvie Boucher ( Beauport—Limoilou, QC) and Kelly Block (Saskatoon—Rosetown—Biggar, Sask) when the committee was formed, they were substituted with other Conservative members including Ed Fast (Abbotsford, BC) who became very active, Hon. Maxime Bernier (Beauce, QC) who became acting chair at one point, as well as Brent Rathgeber (Edmonton—St. Albert, AB), Daryl Kramp (Prince Edward—Hastings, ON), Hon. Michael D. Chong (Wellington—Halton Hills, ON), Leon Benoit (Vegreville—Wainwright, AB), Mike Wallace (Burlington, ON) and Paul Calandra (Oak Ridges—Markham, ON).

G&M: PM faces tough choices replacing female ministers

The Globe and Mail has an interesting article by Campbell Clark speculating about the upcoming cabinet shuffle. The article talks about the female cabinet positions, and whether the PM will promote other women to replace Heritage Minister Bev Oda, viewed by many Tories as a weak communicator, and Revenue Minister, Carol Skelton, who has announced she will not run for re-election.

Will backbenchers Diane Ablonczy, Joy Smith or Lynne Yelich be brought into cabinet?
