Very interesting news from the french-language media, who are reporting that a former candidate for the Conservatives in Quebec, Myriam Taschereau, has resigned her position as a communications staffer in Stephen Harper's PMO to run for the leadership of the l'Action démocratique du Québec (ADQ).
From CP, via Google Translate:
Former Conservative Candidate (PC) in Quebec, Myriam Taschereau, resigned Wednesday evening from his office in the Communications team of Prime Minister Stephen Harper.And I can see why Harper's bodyguards would be concerned with a senior Harper communications adviser going to run for the right-wing ADQ, a ruderless sinking ship that has espoused some rather contreversial policies under Mario Dumont.
Former Conservative Candidate (PC) in Quebec, Myriam Taschereau, resigned Wednesday evening from his office in the Communications team of Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
Ms. Tashereau said she thought the opportunity to present his candidacy in the race for the leadership of the Action démocratique du Québec (ADQ). This intention has sparked unease among some members of the bodyguards of Prime Minister Harper.
Ms. Taschereau could soon announce it officially in the race for leadership of the ADQ. She had been beaten by Christiane Gagnon Bloc during the last federal election. She was then hired by Stephen Harper as a communications adviser in the cabinet of Prime Minister.
The Conservatives enough problems with Jean Charest's Liberals already, and this won't help or endear them to those Charest organizers they're going to need to salvage their dismal Quebec numbers. The ADQ has no machine that can help Harper, as their performance in the last campaign shows.
