Michael Ignatieff resigns

The Liberal leader steps down after historic defeat


Michael Ignatieff has announced his resignation as Liberal leader.

“The only thing Canadians like less than a loser is a sore loser and I go out of politics with my head held high,” he said … “I want to take my responsibility as a leader and as a politician. If I was unable to connect with people, then that is my responsibility,” he said.
