Gary Doer Resigns
Manitoba premier Gary Doer has resigned basically stating that you can stick a fork in him - he's done. (If I were Jack Layton, I'd be checking out my rear view mirror.)
Doer also let the media know that he definitely won't be one of Harper's newly appointed senators.
(In a related note, I had to chuckle this morning when I heard CTV's Roger Smith describe Mike Duffy as "non-partisan" when he was selected by Steve the last time around.)
No word yet on when Doer's leaving or who his successor will be.
Mr Doer Goes to Washington as the new ambassador to the US.
