The New Pierre?
Has Pierre Poilievre been replaced? Normally, the last Member Statement, just prior to the beginning of Question Period, Pierre would stand and offer an attack on Dion and the Liberals. This tactic has gone on for quite some time, Pierre the attack dog, trying to throw off the Liberals before their questions.
Today, no Pierre, instead Harper went literally to the backbench (he can touch the curtains) and brought out rookie MP Dean Del Mastro from Peterborough to do the requisite Liberal bash prior to QP. I must say, pretty effective too, Del Mastro read off his paper so intently, it looked like it hurt.
The bigger question, has Pierre been turfed as primary attack dog? I suppose, it could be something as understandable as still having the cone on his head from being neutered last week, but still....
