Liberals Lose an MP

This one almost got missed... the Federal Liberals are down one seat as of yesterday. Long time MP Joe Fontana has resigned his seat in order to run for mayor of London, Ontario.

That means there might be two by-elections called in the near future. Perhaps a litmus test for an upcoming Federal Election?

NOTE: The article is not clear if he has officially resigned, but the Parliamentary website no longer lists his name as an MP... therefore, I assume he has officially resigned.

House Standings:
Tories - 125
Liberals - 101*
Bloc - 50
NDP - 29

TOTAL - 305*
(Liberal MP Peter Milliken is not included in these totals, as Speaker of the House)

    At the risk of horning my own toot, this didn't get missed altogether. I ranted about it here myself a few days ago. But thanks for spreading the word, anyway...:D

    Cheers
