Fisheries Minister John Crosbie announced his retirement. He admitted he made a few mis-steps in his 28-year career in politics. One of the biggest was his comment to Liberal MP Sheila Copps, whom he called "baby" in 1985. He also infuriated her by singing a song at a political event, that went "pour me another Tequila, Sheila, and lay down and love me again." Crosbie said he wished people would remember some of his accomplishments too.
