Pat Martin shall tweet no more

A statement from the NDP.

These comments were simply inappropriate and unacceptable. Mr. Martin agrees and we understand that he has decided to stop using his Twitter account.

And with that, Pat Martin signs off with one last tweet.

I apologize for my regrettable and inappropriate language yesterday. It seems some people shouldn’t tweet so with this, I sign off.
