From Tuesday Globe: "...By choosing Mr. Ignatieff, Mr. Dion goes against the politically correct fit, which would have been to put an anglophone woman in the role. Interestingly, Opposition Whip Karen Redman inadvertently sent an e-mail last Friday saying she had not got the deputy role and what should she ask for. The e-mail was meant for one of her children but instead ended up in the inboxes of Conservative senators."
So, she already knew on Friday that the job was filled, and was looking for something else to lobby for. That would explain the message title, What Comes Next?
