In January 2002 John Manley was appointed as Deputy
Prime Minister and given special responsibilty for
security in response to 9/11. For his performance in
these roles, he was named Time magazine's
"Canadian newsmaker of the year" in 2001.

Previous to Manley's elevation, Chretien had appointed
his friend Brian Tobin the choice and powerful position
of Minister of Industry, which put him in a position to
develop a relationship with the nation's business
leaders who would ultimately be financing any potential
leadership campaign. In the winter of 2002 Tobin
resigned and left federal politics completely in what was
interpreted by observers to be frustration at the
stranglehold on the future leadership of the Liberal party
by the then Minister of Finance, Paul Martin.

John Manley had become Chretien's newest heir
apparent, and appointed rival to Paul Martin.
