|Baird, Unlock the Doors to the Mens' Room and the Janitor's Closet
John Baird has resigned from the Harper cabinet and from his seat in Parliament. It seems no one knew about it much more than 24-hours before the public announcement.
The punditry allowed that it was a natural move, one of Baird's choosing. He'd done as much as he could in politics. 20-years is a lifetime. Baird was at the zenith, the perfect place from which to enter the private sector. Yada, yada, yada.
I can't say why but I'm getting the sense that there's more to Baird's resignation than we know. I suppose he could have wind that Harper is going to call a snap election and wants to be well out of the way first. Perhaps Baird knows of something going on in the prime minister's life that he doesn't want to be around for.
I'm pretty sure there's something in play. I just don't know what it is yet but I'm trying to find out.
