Stronach and Mackay 'take a break!'

From CP, via Yahoo news,
Stronach, MacKay taking `a break’ as news of defection rocks Parliament

1 hour, 46 minutes ago

OTTAWA (CP) - Belinda Stronach has left not only the Conservative party but also one of the most closely watched romances in Canada.

Sources say her stunning bolt to the Liberals comes as she and Conservative Deputy Leader Peter MacKay take a break from their relationship.

The high-profile pair announced in January that they were dating.

MacKay was holed up in his Parliament Hill office, refusing to comment.

Stronach says she has great respect for MacKay's effort to soften hardline Conservative views on social issues.

She says she didn't feel comfortable aligning herself with the Bloc Quebecois to defeat the big-spending Liberal budget.

Conservative Leader Stephen Harper says MacKay is devastated by Stronach's decision.

Sources say MacKay only learned of Stronach's intentions just before they were made public Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Harper's being kind of mean about it, saying it's only her own ambition driving her, not the good of the country, going on to say
Harper said Stronach's fellow MPs "are feeling quite devastated, quite betrayed by this" – especially Peter MacKay, who has been romantically involved with Stronach for about six months.

"I think Peter's taken this pretty badly, as you can imagine."
Meanwhile, the vote count gets closer.
