"when there is much light, the shadow is deep"

New shadow cabinet unveiled today.

Favourite choice:
David McGuinty on environment. Simply because he's the best damn legislator available and this is the most important critic spot. Yes, outside of John Godfrey who holds the Chair, Marc Holland would also have been a good choice. But his combativeness (which I love - don't get me wrong) can also turn people off. McGuinty is just plain likable, and he will preserve the environment portfolio as a Liberal asset heading into the election.

Least favourite choice:
Nothing really upset me. Belinda's portfolio "Competitiveness and the New Economy" sounds tailor-made for Scott Brison, but this is splitting hairs.

I like Mark Holland a lot, but he can come off as a bit "nuts" sometimes. He's a great debater, but there is going to be a lot of attention on the environment portfolio, we need a guy like McGuinty there.
