Brad Wall

CYPRESS HILLS – Brad Wall is out, when it comes to consideration of who will be the next leader of the federal Conservative party.

The question of who would be the next leader of the Conservatives became acute following the Feb. 2 ouster of Erin O’Toole as party leader. With a minority Parliament, an election can be called at any time.

The afternoon of Feb. 3, Wall posted the following to his Facebook account:

I want to thank those folks who – with very kind comments – have been encouraging me to enter federal politics.

I am so very grateful for my 18 years in public life but I am also grateful for this time in the private sector and for a mostly private life – and will not be returning to elected politics.

Thanks again.

Brad

Just as when Andrew Scheer left the leadership position, Wall was immediately one of the names mentioned as a possible contender.  The National Post, for instance, included Wall in a list of nine possible contenders. In addition to Wall, list included Pierre Poilievre, Peter MacKay, Leslyn Lewis, Michelle Rempel Garner, Michael Chong, Jason Kenney, Derek Sloan and, no joke, “a truck.”

The initial posting of that story included a caption which misidentified Wall as “former Manitoba Premier Brad Wall.” It was later corrected.

Screen capture via National Post the morning of Feb. 3. Note which province Brad Wall was apparently premier of.

Wall is an occasional opinion writer for both the National Post and Pipeline Online. He’s also likely never been a Bombers fan, either. Perhaps the National Post had never seen the banjo video.
