Jason Kenney readying exit from federal politics, sources say

Conservative MP Jason Kenney is poised to announce this summer that he will leave federal politics, fuelling expectations that he intends to run a campaign to unite the right in his home province of Alberta.

I think it is the right move.

He did some good, but was sucked into the vortex of ethnic divide and conquer that characterizes Canadian politics.

  • I would not stick around at all.

  • The Butterfly

    The right does not need uniting in Alberta. The PCs just need to hit the auto-destruct button.

    • Alain

      Please do not think the Alberta PCs are right-wing.

      • Clausewitz

        There is a large difference between Conservatives and conservatives.

        • Justin St.Denis

          Agreed. But I also suspect that “Canadian Conservatives” are either a rumour or extinct.

      • The Butterfly

        I’ve never made that mistake.

  • Ron MacDonald

    He is an excellent candidate for premier.

  • Ho Hum

    He has gone as far as he can go in federal politics. You cannot become PM without inviting close scrutiny of your personal life and I doubt that Kenney could pass the scrutiny ( I suspect he is a closeted homosexual). Considering his big “accomplishment” as immigration minister was flooding Canada with half a million muslims he will not be missed.

    • That was an egregious error. So was the TFW program.

    • Justin St.Denis

      I do not think of Jason as a “closeted homosexual” but as a discreet gay man. I think most feel similarly. Sexual orientation is unrelated to the issue.

  • Maurixio Garciasanchez

    I wish El Maestro will take his place he already graduated from the Cons of fraud university.

  • FivePointSpurgeon

    One pandering POS down, Rona is hopefully next.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Rona Ambrose is RIDICULOUS, but she is not a conservative, let alone a Conservative.

    What Alberta Conservatives need is another former federal minister to take the helm.
    It worked out really well last time.

  • Gary

    Calgary is a hotbed for islamsits and rabid pro-hamas jew-hating muslims as we saw when about 1000 muslims came out to support Hamas but a splinter group rioted to attack Canadians and send 9 people to the hospital .
    The gay muslim mayor is islamophilic and a co jew hating muslim.

    Alberta will need some guided healing after they dump the communists

    Doing a “Unite The Alberta Right” in a copycat of the ramshackle BC style patch job and what could go wrong?
    Welcome to Ontario by the Rockies with the NDP as sole opposition for two terms while the stench of their first effort in office slowly recedes.
