I thought this was worth a new thread. Maybe Kirsty can lead her party out of the wilderness? Next PM?

Dr. Duncan

I think: they will want to consider if there are any 'seat sales' happening. Dr. Duncan may not want to serve in that role. Plus it's very early in the Harper majority's mandate. I think things are pretty fluid right now. The great thing that has happened on the hill is there is a lot of new muscle available to the known NDP members who are our friends, who will fight this battle as Opposition. Harper has a very America-centric view of the way a government works. He does not think much of the whole concept of "Opposition". Kind of a Sesame-Street word to him. Maybe the whole idea of a legislative branch is so yesterday with the Real Right. Executive branch only, please.

We'll see how the titans clash. I liked Elizabeth May's saying, that amateurs built the Ark, but the Titanic was a professional job.

Hi all
I followed Kirstys riding race and it worried me a bit when it looked close.

She remains one of best most passionate advocates and a champion for the ccsvi cause. We do not know all of the secrets to this yet, but we learn more every day because of people like her pushing it.

We are lucky to have her back in office, making a name for us, by
making a name for herself. She replies to every email I have sent her
with genuine care and concern.
Democracy it would seem has a kind side.

ETOBICOKE NORTH: 'Hard-working' Duncan ready to fight for her community

Duncan said she was also thrilled at her re-election for the opportunity it affords her to continue work on her passion projects at the national level - namely her support of MS patients, veterans, and her work on rare disorders such as sickle cell anemia.

That work begins later this week, she said, with two speaking engagements in as many weeks related to her fight for clinical trials for Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI) therapy, also known as the "Liberation Procedure." The controversial multiple sclerosis procedure, which was denied funding for a pan-Canadian trial by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and MS Society of Canada last August, involves standard balloon angioplasty and was pioneered by an Italian doctor to treat CCSVI patients.

Duncan's first stop will be at the Toronto CCSVI Rally at Queen's Park on Thursday; the second will see her travel to California.
