Senator Mike Duffy’s appointment to the Upper Chamber on December 22, 2008, launched his career as a vaunted party fundraiser, a parliamentarian who constantly paid tributes to retiring colleagues, and a tireless campaigner during the 2011 federal election. Duffy’s time as a senator has seen him cross the country in his adopted party’s name—that is, until he resigned from the Conservative caucus.

This timeline illustrates the P.E.I. native’s life as a parliamentarian. Aaron Wherry and Manisha Krishnan take a deeper look at Duffy’s time as a senator.
