Jim Flaherty's Last Tweet Will Break Your Heart

Politicians of all stripes have lined up to praise the late Jim Flaherty, calling him, among other things, one of the best finance ministers in Canadian history, and a leading global figure during the Great Recession of 2008-2009.

But the other thing people have been saying was that Flaherty, regardless of his politics, was just a nice guy.

Here’s some evidence of that: Flaherty’s last tweet. He sent it out on March 18, the day he announced his resignation as finance minister.
