Peter Stoffer, a NDP MP for 18 years, is in Ottawa this week to say farewell. Stoffer is one of several New Democrats who lost their seat last Monday. He says supporters have been very kind to him as he prepares to leave political life. (The NDP, reduced to third-party status in the Commons, now has 44 seats. That's down from 95 in the previous Parliament, with high-profile MPs such as Paul Dewar, Megan Leslie and Peggy Nash also losing their seats to Liberals.)
