Stephen Harper is leaving as Conservative leader after watching voters dismantle the party he built from the rubble of the old PC and Reform parties, province by province, riding by riding, right down to its very foundation.

Harper accepted his government's defeat in Calgary last night in a concession speech that was remarkable for the fact he made no mention he'd notified the Conservative executive of his intention to step aside as leader, and that a leadership selection process be started.

That news was delivered in a written statement by party president John Walsh — a terse four lines that said the man who created one of the most effective Conservative machines in Canadian history now wanted out.
