Political Scientist Speculates on Thompsons Next Move

One political scientist suggests the timing of Minister Thompsons resignation may be foreshadowing what is to come.
Don Desserud tells CHSJ News, if you're going to give up a ministerial post, now is the time to do it, to give the new person time to prepare for the opening of parliament.
Desserud says his first reaction was Thompson is stepping aside to be elevated to the upper chamber.
He says if he were a betting person, he would look at Thompsons stock for the next senate appointment rise rather quickly.
Earlier last week, Conservative M-L-A Margaret Ann Blaneys name resurfaced as a possible candidate for the Senate, but Desserud says she's been in the game long enough not to get her hopes up.
