This comes as no surprise.
It has been rumoured for months that Lord would end up in Montreal. Good for him. For a lot of ex-Premiers life after politics can be cruel and marginal. I hope he can craft a good career with the firm.
The only point that I will crab about is that Lord and a host of his cronies all said that he would find a job where he would ‘serve the people of New Brunswick’ – I think that was the exact term he used.
Now, migrating out of New Brunswick before the dust even settles may not fit this criteria.
But, who knows, he may advise corporate clients to move to New Brunswick. Or he may be prepping another national run from Montreal in which he would ‘serve New Brunswickers’.
