By the summer of 2001 Jean Chretien
was finally signalling that his time in
office was drawing to a close and
encouraged potential heirs to step up.
Until the official leadership race had
been called, Chretien had made it clear
to prospective candidates that their
campaigning for his job could not
interfere with their current cabinet job.
No other cabinet minister felt the
pressure to the extent at which Paul
Martin encountered it.  Depicted in the
cartoon are John Manley, Allan Rock,
Brian Tobin (regarded as Chretien's
favourite), and Sheila Copps.
