Raitt shuffled out?

John Ivison, conduit to the PMO reports:
The same insider suggested more likely candidates to be shuffled include Lisa Raitt, the Natural Resources Minister, who has been at the centre of a series of controversies after leaving a secret document in a TV newsroom and being caught on tape calling the isotope shortage "sexy."
Well, yes, those. And doing nothing about the shortage too. Kind of important.

Not a whole heck of a lot of news there other than the Raitt item in terms of who might be coming or going.

We did learn a new word though. Note that the cabinet might be "refreshed," writes HarperBizarro. Gee, it's almost like they have a thesaurus stuck on the "R" page or something, isn't it? Well, to be charitable, here are a few others they might try too: "retread," "recycle," and "regress." Those words are much more appropriate, IMHO, for this prorogation period.
