My Take: By Gordon Lambie

My Take: By Gordon Lambie

It’s silly, but I can’t resist jokes about woodworking on days when governments announce their various ministries. Knowing the composition of the cabinets for our provincial and federal governments is important, as it gives us a sense of who will be handling (or mishandling) matters ranging from healthcare to tourism, but inevitably the first thing my brain will do is slap an apron on the Premier and give him a chisel.
It’s generous to call it a tired joke at this point, and yet some Lewis-Carroll-esque literalist in my head just can’t let it go.
As I write this, the announcement of our new lineup of ministers is just minutes away and I, for one, can’t want to see the finish. I’ve never made a cabinet, myself, but I’ve definitely shuffled a few over the years; specifically through doorways and both up and down staircases.
