Jason MacDonald leaving Prime Minister's Office

Stephen Harper's chief spokesman is leaving the Prime Minister's Office seven months before the official start of the next federal election campaign, a source said Friday.
Jason MacDonald, the prime minister's director of communications, took on the job in September 2013, after the previous spokesman, Andrew MacDougall, left. MacDonald had been the director of communications to Aboriginal Affairs Minister Bernard Valcourt.
Rob Nicol, vice-president of corporate affairs at Canadian Tire, will take over from MacDonald. MacDonald will join the public relations and lobbying firm Hill+Knowlton.
Excellent CBC story on Harper's communications directors
