Jason Kenney Wants Foreign Affairs Portfolio

Sean Durkan is a political commentator and communications consultant. He writes for Embassy: Canada's Foreign Policy Newsletter. In the September 27th edition, he includes the following little snippet. Under the main article heading 'Emotions Run High as Supporters See Red' there is a subheading entitled: Party Time, from which I quote:

Party Time
Acting British High Commissioner Julian Evans has been keeping busy since taking over from David Reddaway, who last month took up his new duties in Ireland. Just last week Mr. Evans hosted two parties at the British HC's official residence on Sussex Drive.

The first was on Wednesday: A reception for the Ottawa Diplomatic Association, which is always a good opportunity to catch up on the news.
I gather Jason Kenney, the parliamentary secretary to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, was in attendance. It is no secret in diplomatic circles that Mr. Kenney would dearly love to be foreign affairs minister, but as he noted to guests at Earnscliffe last week, he is going to be out of luck because he is from seat-rich Alberta, which already is represented by the prime minister (Calgary Southwest) and several other ministers. Also doing the rounds was Maclean's columnist Paul Wells, who is busy promoting his new book, The Right Side Up: The Fall of Paul Martin and the Rise of Stephen Harper's New Conservativism.
