Peter MACKAY is leaving politics and Stephen Harper to return to live in New Scotland with his family … He will not be of the next October election!
His departure may mean that the new dolphin to lead the Conservative Party of Canada would be, as the rumor runs for several months, Jean Charest, who is preparing for the post-Harper in a few years. Sources from the world of politics are running this idea of a comeback by Jean Charest and we do not speak of the next October election. We talk to after that.
Or Harper will want to stay or he will leave in the coming years and this is where Charest would come into play. But that these are projections by stands “managers”…
As for Peter, it is said that his wife, political activist and former beauty queen, Nazanin Afshin-Jam MacKay, wants to do politics. She could be the one that takes over but not with the Conservative Party…
Peter likes to live time at his father’s farm more than in Ottawa. The MacKay are a bit the Péladeau of Nova Scotia in the wood industry and as landowner, a notorious family (if not a rich one).
Peter’s father, Elmer, is a man of great kindness and generosity with a very deep respect for the people around him. He is himself a former career politician at the time of Brian Mulroney.
I personally have known Elmer during my years in Ottawa and if I had to choose a companion to live and survive on a desert island, I would choose Elmer MacKay. A real good and generous human guys!
The son Peter is a lucky man and fostered by life. He turns 50 in September, when he and his wife expected a second baby (a girl) also in September.
