I agree with Joe Clark

Joe Clark was quoted in this article today as saying that none of the leaders of the opposition parties are Prime Minister material. Well for once I am in agreement with Joe Who. I agree that none of the opposition leaders come close to being the archetypal Canadian Prime Minister.

For starters, none of the opposition leaders have stolen money from the people that elected them. The closest we have to that in the opposition is Svend Robinson, and he actually returned everything he stole and he sat out one election.

Secondly, none of the opposition leaders are arrogant, self-aggrandizing asshats. Although Jack Layton does come the closest on that count, no one can compare to the Prime Ministers we have had in the last 35 years or so.

Lastly, none of the opposition leaders has done more damage to the unity of Canada than the current and former PM. Admittedly, Gilles Duceppe does want to take Canada out of Confederation, but the last two PM’s have pushed all regions of Canada to the brink of secession. Alberta wants to separate from Ontario, Quebec wants out of Canada, the rurals want to separate from the cities, and everyone wants to separate from Toronto.

Although there are many other reasons that I didn’t mention, I think Joe is quite accurate in describing the other leaders as not up to the job of Prime Minister. With the previous examples of PM that we have had in this country, this is a huge compliment to those opposition leaders.

All I can add is "Joe, thank god none of them are like you!"
