On Garth Turner ...

Garth Turner's defeat to Conservative Lisa Raitt is a huge loss to the Liberal caucus as far as I'm concerned. He wasn't afraid to ask himself what a maverick would do and then do that (yes, I'm channelling Tina Fey).

I'll say it again - the House of Commons would be better with a few more Garth Turners and a few less of the "principled alternatives" ...

Speaking of principled alternatives, we say goodbye to Rahim Jaffer - yes, he was only the messenger.

I was going to say we also say goodbye to Michael Fortier, but since he never sat in the House, we never technically said 'hello'.

Harper really had it in for Garth and threw everything at him.

I wouldn't be surprised if there were electoral spending violations. As if Harper would care.

You're right, Mark. Stephen Harper wouldn't care.
