Stockwell Day has just announced that he will not be seeking re-election, and in fact, may be retiring from politics.
I'm not going to pretend that this is sad news. He's been a horrible MP and a horrible cabinet minister.
Along with Day, Harper is also losing Chuck Strahl, someone I actually liked, and John Cummins.
Are they just getting tired of it all? Having no real function in a government of one?
I would imagine that Stockwell Day hates being called a 'Tory' as much as Stephen Harper does. All those years trying to create a new right wing, and instead their wings have been clipped.
Time for this party to go.
