Conservative MP Tony Clement, 57, has represented Parry Sound-Muskoka, Ont., since 2006. He’s a former Stephen Harper-era cabinet minister and a former Ontario provincial politician who has been a prominent member of the federal Conservative Party and the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party for decades. He ran twice for the federal party’s leadership. Until last week, he was his party’s justice critic, a member of a number of House committees and was one of only two Conservative members of prestigious Parliament’s National Security and Intelligence Committee. He hosted his own radio show, played the guitar, and, by all accounts, enjoyed his work as an MP. But he threw it all away last Tuesday night.
