'At some point, of course, you have to bring it to an end.'—Finance Minister Tom Marshall

"I've been the member for nine years. I'm very grateful to have had the opportunity to be in public life, but at some point, of course, you have to bring it to an end," he said.

Marshall grew up in Corner Brook. He completed a business degree, and became a lawyer in 1972.

He was first elected in 2003, and has held several portfolios, including justice and intergovernmental affairs.

His term ends in 2015.
