Now that Stephen Harper is going to transition into the private sector, I think his main selling point is that he was a successful leader for a decade of a G7 country. And that’s no small feat.

Parliament was on break this week, but lots still happened. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited Japan for the G7 Summit — where he managed to fit in some anniversary time with his wife — and both the Conservatives and the Liberals held their conventions over the weekend. On top of that, there was media speculation that former Prime Minister Stephen Harper plans to resign his seat in the House of Commons.
