Former Communications Director Says Flaherty Was Great to Work For
Chisholm Pothier says Jim Flaherty was an old school politician who believed political rival didn't mean political enemy. The former Finance Minister's Director of Communications tells CHSJ News he was well regarded by everyone.
Pothier says Flaherty loved the cut and thrust of life as a parliamentarian adding he liked people and they liked him.
Flaherty's ancestors arrived at Patridge Island in the 1840's while fleeing the potato famine in Ireland and Pothier says this province held a place in his heart.
His final budget included funding for a study to determine the future of Patridge Island.
