The Curse of the Irish forces Jim Flaherty to resign!!
In a strangely symbolic gesture, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty, who always sports a green tie as a symbol of his Irish heritage, tendered his resignation to Prime Minister Harper on St. Patrick's day, March 17, although official announcement was delayed until the 18th.
Also reflecting his Irish heritage, Canadian finance Minister Flaherty developed a rare skin disease exactly similar to the disease inflicted upon ancient Irish jurists who engaged in false judgments only a few months after Canadian, also of Irish heritage, Justice Carolyn Layden Stevenson was murdered as part of a government led cover up of the Water War Crimes. Two weeks after her death, Department of Justice lawyer Eric Noel allegedly committed suicide although some say that he too was murdered for his role in the strategy of deceit carried out the Department of Justice.

The blood of Carolyn Layden-Stevenson and Department of Justice lawyer, Eric Noel, now weighs heavily on the remnant of the Harper cabinet who were and are collectively guilty for the murders although, to be fair, Prime Minister Harper is not a lawyer and he would necessarily rely on the lawyers in his cabinet for proper advice and guidance. Instead, the advice he got was plainly wrong - not legal. The strategy employed by his lawyers was illegal and contrary to fundamental principles, the lawyers used a relatively innocent judge to carry out their devilish strategy and then they murdered her to cover the trail of evidence that led back to them.
It was bad medicine, as the Natives say, and so Finance Minister Flaherty knew that his time had come and he had to leave.
