Mr. Wilson Goes To Washington

Former finance minister and Bay Street investment banker Michael Wilson will become Canada's next ambassador to the United States.

This appointment will be a great improvement over the previous one on several levels. Wilson has no further political ambitions and will not cause embarrassment by insulting the U.S. to score personal political points.

Expect Canada-U.S. relations to begin improving under Wilson's watch.

To be fair, I have never heard anything that would fault McKenna. Wilson will be a good ambassador, but the problem was not in DC.

This is another brilliant move by the Prime Minister. I have met Mr. Wilson, as stated on my blog, and he's an excellent, if not perfect choice.
