A big loss for Parliament

Railway brakeman, United Church minister, MP respected by all parties: Bill Blaikie, longest-serving MP and still a fairly young man, is packing it in. The guy was the best debater in the NDP benches and one of the strongest voices of reason in the House. His departure will leave a big hole in the NDP, no matter how many Dippers are elected next time ot.

Blaikie was wonderful. As we lose MP's like Bill and Ed, our parliament loses more civility.
On another note, I like your blog.
