I figure if he gets out of politics, he should be hired to succeed Stu Murray as the head of the Rights Museum.

I wonder if he'll stay as an MLA or just quit front office politics. Guesses?

He'll quit. Much more lucrative to be a lawyer or president of a museum.

I think that he only stepped down as leader of the PC, which was probably a wise move given the lack of success. This does not imply at all that he is leaving his elected office or the party.

He's too young for such a dull job. Plus, it'll look like he's just another politician on the take like Stu Murray, Glen Murray, Su Thompson, etc.

Sue Thompson, btw, is leaving the U of W.

A bit of a tiff with The Axe I suspect.

Any bets that the NDP will not hire Mcfadyne to run anything?

Maybe Harper and the Museum? And I had hoped to get that job!

It's a thankless job, Rosie. They can't even get the chewish community to pay for the shortfall!

The U of W Foundation just completed an incredibly successful capital campaign, and its now unusual for people in the fundraising business move on to something else after a campaign is completed.
