I just heard this while listening to CBC, and a quick search found this Globe and Mail story:
A member of the NDP since the age of 14, Mr. Robinson was first elected to the House of Commons in May 1979 to represent the riding of Burnaby-Douglas.
Globe and Mail: Svend Robinson leaving politics: report
Mr. Robinson is apparently making a public announcement here in Vancouver, likely later today.
