Flaherty's Legacy: The Good, The Bad & The Very Ugly

Flaherty, who was only 64 when he died, was devoted to his family and one of the most popular Members of Parliament.

With apologies to Clint Eastwood, the Flaherty/Harper contributions to the economic life of the country can be broken into three main areas: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.
