Good riddance to Gilles Duceppe?

The Canadian Press reports former Bloc Québécois leader Gilles Duceppe has ended speculation that he wants to replace Pauline Marois as leader of the Parti Québécois, saying he can’t imagine a return to political life. Apparently, however, Duceppe didn’t say his decision was permanent.

The former Bloc leader reportedly said Sunday that he will devote his time to clearing his name after a Montreal newspaper reported he mishandled public funds while he was head of the federal party.

Duceppe has denied any claims of wrongdoing; however, the allegations are certain to have hurt any chances he had to replace the beleaguered Pauline Marois.

  1. With ethics like that he could come work for Alison REDford and the Alberta PCs. (Until the next election, at least:)
