 John McCallum Wednesday-Night History
John McCallum once said in an interview that if he were to be given a cabinet role "it would be logical if it were something related to economics." On May 26, 2002, McCallum was handed the national defence portfolio, and the former economist was thrown into the challenging role formerly held by Art Eggleton.
McCallum's first official day on the job as junior finance minister, he also attacked the banks for charging "grotesquely high" credit card interest rates, and was summarily chastised by Jean Chrétien, the Prime Minister, for speaking out of turn.
McCallum believed that he would wait in obscurity for long, but even those who know him best are likely to be surprised by a meteoric political rise that has pushed him from winning a seat to assuming one of the country's most powerful Cabinet positions in less than two years.
