The Mayor’s Next Job?


The post above on Mayor Jim Watson’s empty Tory chair leads to another point.

Watson has certainly had a high profile in the federal election campaign.

Future Liberal aspirations perchance?

Maybe all these grandstanding machinations over the federal election at Ottawa City Hall are really about Showboat Jim promoting himself … a not unheard-of trait of the mayor.

But Watson does not stay in a job for a long time. He’s kind of a one-term-and-three-years kind of guy.

Where’s a career politician’s next logical step?

Let’s see, He’s done municipal (twice) and provincial.

What’s left?

The feds.
