Stockwell's day

The newly elected MP for Okanagan-Coquihalla is basking in his overwhelming federal byelection win.

Canadian Alliance Leader Stockwell Day picked up 70% of the votes to defeat his seven challengers.

Day showed some skin Monday when he talked to reporters in Penticton. The soon-to-be opposition leader, arrived at the lakefront news conference on a Sea-Doo.

Day outlined plans to hold set elections every four years. He also says the House of Commons shouldn't sit on Fridays.

He says the time away from the House would enable MP's to work on constituency issues.
