I've already put together my Cabinet team and all who were asked acceptted. I will go through who was all picked and why. I'll also get more indepth on how the alliance voting process will progress. Its still in the beginning phases but I'd like to have it prepared for after CP elections if and when I win. Always good to be ready.
I chose Randall because he's been a strong voice in CPF since EPICs fall in the summer. As a representative of canada's largest party is only fair for them to have a strong voice in govt. He will also be directly responsible for helping me put together the referendum alliance vote.
Minister of Defence
Many might think this a bit of an oddball choice but I would disagree. Zappie has worked tirelessly for the Boomers Academy as well as helpin Canada in wartime through donations or directly supplying international soldiers to fight for us. He's active and on IRC alot. 2 pluses in my book. He's also been a player I've been slowly teaching and molding in my own image.
Minister of Foreign Affairs
Kind of a no brainer as he's always been my default MoFa. Great writer and communicater with a large following of readers. I've already asked him to release an article stating all the eWorlds alliances its membership and enemies. Perfect material needed leading into an alliance vote.
Minister of Finance
Not anyone I know myself but he's already come highly recomended by a few players I respect including MaryChan so thats good enough in my books. I'm already impressed with our early pm discussions.
Sidenote until Armour144's forward Canada article I didn't even know our govt doesn't do a budget anymore. I just thought it was something that was always done in this country as far back as I can remember. How can you know what u can spend or how u can spend it without an outline of costs and incoming coin.
Bryan Alexander has agreed that during his second term of MoF he will do up a nation budget outline. Its not a question if I believe in this its just like I said there has always been one to look on.
Alliance Vote Update
If I'm elected as CP of Canada I will immediately begin the process of helping Canada decide an alliance to join. I'll be relying on Randall to help me through a voting process as he's experienced making internal CPF votes. I'm guessing it will take a 5-7 days with a 3 day voting window.
As an outline I have so far come up with these as choices.
2-Stay neutral Pro-Eden
I haven't decided to put EDEN on the card as of yet because the alliance is dying. This is just in the early stages and suggestions are welcome and my cabinet will be going through this with me.
Personally I like the idea of joining and helping to grow Asgarde in a small tight knit alliance while supporting traditional allies through MPP's. Then if and when a direct Asgarde member is threatened go balls to the wall.
I'm against joining CoT because that will mean making war on old time traditional allies. I fear it could tear the country apart and create alot of chaos as many citizens will not want to make war on old friends. If anyone has noticed many ex-citizens of Canada just started trickling back to the homeland. Many have left USA over this exact issue.
This is only my opinion though.
Whatever is decided by the country will be honored under my administration whether or not I agree with the decision. I will be bound to make the best and give my best to make sure Canada makes positive headway. This isn't about what I want but more about what the citizens of the country want.
All I ask in return as a citizen and a CP hopeful is that all political parties let there members vote freely for whatever alliance they would like to see us in. Seems to me thats a fair trade off.
