I have much respect for Steven Fletcher, so this rant is not attacking him personally or even professionally.

That said, why is an MP from Manitoba being named to represent Northern Ontario? I have no doubt that Mr. Fletcher will do his job well, but honestly why is this happening? Just as there were others capable of representing the Montreal and Vancouver regions, surely someone from Ontario would be appropriate for a Ministry that is for Northern ONTARIO?

I smell the stench of Baie Comeau coming from Ottawa. Why might that be?
