In 2008, Leona Aglukkaq (http://www.leonaaglukkaq.ca/about_leona/) was the surprise winner of a three-way contest in a former Liberal bastion. She was immediately elevated to Health Minister, is the first Inuk to hold a Cabinet position in Canada, and has generally performed well in her portfolio, unlike certain other Harper Cabinet ministers.

She is quietly mentioned as a possible dark horse candidate to succeed Stephen Harper as Conservative leader should Harper lose the election and step down.
