Former Prime Minister Stephen Harper has decided to leave politics and it’s expected that he will start a consulting firm in Calgary.
Harper is planning to issue a statement on Friday morning that will announce and confirm his resignation.
The 57-year-old decided to stay on as a member of parliament in his Calgary riding 10 months ago after the Conservatives were ousted by the Trudeau Liberals in the federal election back on October 19th, 2015.
Stephen Harper first entered politics back in 1993 as a member of the Reform party and then a decade later he became the federal leader of the PC party.
Harper has been residing in Calgary since last fall.
