Yet another member of Stephen Harper's inner circle, communications director John Williamson, is fleeing for greener pastures:
Four flaks and counting. John Williamson, who joined the Prime Minister’s Office late last summer as Stephen Harper’s communications director, is leaving. Was it something we said?
No. The 39-year-old Atlantic Canadian wants to try his hand at elected politics – he is seeking the Conservative nomination in the federal riding of New Brunswick Southwest.
Greg Thompson, who recently stepped aside as Veteran’s Affairs Minister, has represented that riding for nearly 20 years and has decided not to run in the next election.
Mr. Williamson, a past federal director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, did not make much of an impression in his short time in the key PMO post. He was barely visible.
It once again raises the question: why are they all leaving Stephen Harper?
