Watson no doubt would want to help celebrate Ottawa 2017 with his name all over it. And he’d like to cut the ribbon for the light-rail project.
That said after two terms, Watson’s charm might be running a little thin with voters and his media supporters as well. Better to leave on top than get beaten at the polls.
Watson has also been spending a lot of time with our federal cabinet ministers, a sign perhaps that he might jockey for a Liberal riding in the next federal election. In political terms, that’s his only alternative having won municipally and provincially.
Being bilingual, Watson has a step up federally on a number of Liberal candidates. But then Watson only runs when he has a sure thing. A couple of Ottawa ridings are Liberal slam dunks. He’s also reaching an age (55) where he needs to make a decision about his future. If he thinks Parliament Hill is in his plans, Watson must move now.
That all said, here’s how The Bulldog’s readers feel:
