Mulroney Lists His Political Honour Roll
October 28, 2010
submit to reddit

Former Conservative PM Brian Mulroney recently revealed his top three picks for most effective federal politician. And his answers surprised a lot of people. Instead of name-dropping our current Conservative Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, or Liberal Leader, Michael Ignatieff, Mulroney went with:

  • NDP Leader Jack Layton
  • Liberal Foreign Affairs Critic Bob Rae
  • Government House Leader John Baird

Why? Because he felt these three were the best performers in the House of Commons. This is interesting. Obviously Mulroney opposes these guys ideologically, but he's not afraid to show his respect for them. This is something that's missing on Parliament Hill today...

Team Mulroney!
