I love that word “interim!”

You know, this was a big week for the Liberals taking over the government in Ottawa, but it was also a big week for Rona Ambrose who was named interim Conservative leader on Thursday. 

But I think the press is making way too much of this story. This is “interim”, people, as in “temporary”. The permanent leader will be chosen later — with the whole party getting to vote on that. 

Aside from that, I can tell you from experience what being an “interim” person in a job is like. It’s a lot of work, or in my case, extra work because I have to cover and write about sports every weekend instead of relaxing at home. I am guessing my “interim” sports reporting duties will wrap up soon, but can’t tell you much more than that.
