The Vancouver Scrum

On the move!

Agh! You’re still here? My new site and weblog, is now up and running; new posts are building up over there, never to be mirrored here. Go! What are you waiting for? All the stuff worth keeping has been migrated over to the new server, and I don’t anticipate making any more posts here.

Bloggers and webmasters: Update your links! Simply replace with in your blogrolls or bookmarks to point to the new site. Old posts will remain on this server for as long as the people at Blogger/Google allow them to remain; unfortunately, I’m not going to bother to come up with any way of converting permalinks on this blog to their corresponding posts on the new site. Yes, I plead laziness. I also realize the irony of switching away from Blogger just it starts to add features that the demanding blog nerds insist upon.

Thanks for reading and linking, and see you over at!

Top Canada Leadership Contenders Could Quit-Sources

Reuters' David Ljunggren is reporting that the long-term future of both Induatry Minister Allan Rock and Finance Minister John Manley in the federal cabinet is uncertain.

Why might Manley leave?

Relations between Martin and Manley, both on the fiscally conservative wing of the Liberals, have become increasingly strained and well-placed sources say Manley is now flirting with the idea of quitting cabinet if Martin did become prime minister.

Or Rock? usually reliable source said the minister had decided to quit politics in the very near future -- "He knows he has no chance of beating Martin" -- and go back to practicing law.

Rock's people are denying it, however.

Of course, if Paul Martin does become Liveral leader, Manley and Rock could be in line to succeed Martin as Liberal leader -- both Rock and Manley are in their early fifties.
