Further shake-up in Conservative communications shop

The Globe and Mail reports two more members of the Conservative communications team is leaving:
Ottawa — Stephen Harper's communications team will be stripped to the bone after two key members announced they will leave their posts. Their departures follow those of two other senior PR staffers who quit in recent weeks.

Geoff Norquay, the affable and accessible director of communications, and Yaroslav Baran, the strategic communications director, announced Wednesday that this would be the last day.
This brings to four the number of resignations since the Grewal broke. On June 8, at the height of the Grewal communications debacle Mike Storeshaw and Jim Armour resigned (see here).
