Would be curious how he’d fit into that structure, would have to think they’d clean house and get rid of Nonis, Poulin, etc

Go for it, Shanny.  Maybe someone with more guts than you can start leveling more severe penalties against headshots.

I was going to say that he’s too competent, but after the current run with Department of Justice maybe he’s sunk down to a Maple Leaf level?
