Thursday marked the eighth anniversary of the 2006 federal election which saw the Harper Conservatives come into power.
In light of that anniversary, we went to our expert political panel and asked each of them to identify one highlight and one 'low-light' of Stephen Harper's first eight years in office.
Here's what they said:
Warren Kinsella, Sun News analyst and Liberal insider
Highlight: "Harper's apology for the residential schools. He looked, and sounded, truly saddened and ashamed for what happened in those places. It was, and is, his finest moment."
Low-light: "There have been too many. But his decision to eliminate the election subsidy - which led to the next-day formation of a coalition government, and very nearly Harper's demise - was petty and stupid. He looked like a tinpot dictator, and a defeated one at that. He's lucky he survived that little exercise in petulance and pettiness."
