Earnscliffe, fully in charge, clad in an open-neck Hawaiian sports shirt, appoints a cabinet

After single-handedly pulling the Liberal party out of the June 29 election fire, Paul Martin has allowed himself to be relegated to his old status of ventriloquated dummy (See our material on Paul Martin) and the Earnscliffe Strategy Group (See "Who is Earnscliffe, anyway?") has effortlessly restored itself to total control of the Government of Canada. Last week Earnscliffe appointed a cabinet.

No one advised veteran cabinet ministers before Tuesday that they were being dropped from cabinet. On Tuesday, in another display of Earnscliffian arrogance a long-long limousine deposited Earnscliffe boss David Hearle at the formal cabinet installation ceremony clad in an open-neck, loud Hawaiian sports shirt. Earnscliffe appointed Hamilton Liberal godfather Tony Valeri house leader - Valeri cannot speak French. And Earnscliffe appointed discredited separatist MP Jean Lapierre transport minister despite howls from Quebec Liberals for his removal from influence. The Gucci guys from Earnscliffe appointed maritime blabbermouth Andy Scott as Minister of Indian Affairs - during the APEC pepper spray inquiry Scott demonstrated a cynical contempt for civil rights, which aboriginals fully expect to be translated into an equal contempt for aboriginal rights. Earnscliffe enjoys bullying members of parliament and cabinet ministers but, like most bullies, is easily bullied itself. Pierre (the "Jackass") Pettigrew bullied Earnscliffe into appointing him Minister of Foreign Affairs. Westerners remember Pettigrew for his failure, over years and years, to resolve the softwood lumber dispute - God help our efforts to open the U.S. border to Alberta Beef. Appointed to Minister of the Environment was doctrinaire Ottawa-firster Stephen Dion. Dion will probably try to put Alberta in its place vis-a-vis the Kyoto Accord. Dion had been a Chretien supporter and was thrown out of the first Martin cabinet but he saved Earnscliffe's bacon in Quebec during the election campaign. With the exception of Dion, Earnscliffe was guided by neither competency or acceptability in its appointments - all that was needed was 100% loyalty to Paul Martin Junior (a.k.a. the Earnscliffe Strategy Group). This government will not last.
