Ray Novak, Stephen Harper's chief of staff and a key member of the Conservative campaign team, has been caught in the slipstream of Mike Duffy's criminal trial. Now, the opposition Liberals are calling on Harper to fire him. MP Dominic LeBlanc says Novak should have lost his job long ago. (Emails entered into evidence at the Duffy trial show Novak was explicitly told that former Harper chief of staff Nigel Wright intended to pay the embattled senator's expenses. But Harper spokesman Kory Teneycke (ten-IKE') says Novak never saw the specific email describing the plan.)
