Barry Penner seems to be taking this whole ‘retirement’ thing a little too seriously. Look Barry, just because you are retiring from public life doesn’t mean you need to be moving in to a retirement community. You’re still young!

Of course, John Les is just tagging along as usual.

Barry Penner, with his wife and daughter packing up his office. Notice that he still has the baby tucked under his arm. Totally doable, is all I’m saying. Especially for Barry Penner.

What, you didn’t seriously think I’d go all John Les on you?

You know what I love about this picture? No, it isn’t Barry Penner looking all official in front of a door and sign that look even more official. No, it’s not that the sign gives me the mental image of  Barry Penner spending his days at a desk in the middle of a Scrooge McDuck-style money vault. No, it’s that the picture was taken (according to the Government Flickr page) on August 16th… two days before Barry Penner announced he was stepping down. According to interviews, the tipping point for his decision came earlier this month, so he very likely knew that he would be stepping down as Attorney General while the photo was being taken in front of a gigantic golden ATTORNEY GENERAL sign.

 

But did he cancel the photo shoot? Did he ‘reschedule’ to a later day so as to keep his decision private but not waste the time taking pictures that would be relevant for only two days? Of course not. Because the world needs as any pictures of Barry Penner as it can possible get, and this… this is a good one.

Barry Penner’s photos are a lot less exciting since he left The Environment post. Nothing against these ladies, but standing next to two of his employees in front of a sign in what looks like a hotel lobby just lacks a certain something.

Since becoming Attorney General, Barry Penner is now the Master of the HST Referendum (seriously, that’s on his business card). That means that no matter where he is, he has to deal with 12% more press. Well, until the results of the mail-in ballot are in. Perhaps.
