Lapierre leaving, dare we dream?

It's only rumour at this point, meriting just one sentence in the requisite weekly Hill Times story today about Liberal leadership speculation (new name this week: Dominic LeBlanc). Still, I can hope, can't I?

Moreover, there are rumblings about whether or not Jean Lapierre (Outremont, Que.) will want to stick it out in this Parliament.

Maybe Jean and David Emerson could share a ride to the airport?

I don't care for Lapierre (slogan!), but if he wants to leave, he should wait until we've got a permanent leader to campaign in the by-election, else he jeopardizes a federalist seat in Quebec. Ideally, wait for the next election (1-2 years), and then don't run.

Of course, if Martin Cauchon wants to get back in, this would be ideal for him.

Sorry kids. Lapierre is staying through to the next election and is salivating at the thought of going after the Tories in QP. Long live JCL!
