LaP Returns?

Wow. Very interesting story over at Canada.com:


MONTREAL: Sources close to Jean Lapierre indicate that the former federal Liberal Quebec lieutenant is eying a return to politics. Lapierre has privately indicated to his most trusted advisers that he's eager to get back into the game and will toss his hat into the ring for PQ leadership should Andre Boisclair step down as the party's leader following their third place showing last week.

Although his most recent involvement was with the federal Liberals, Lapierre is the former co-founder of the Bloc Quebecois and has many connections among sovereignists who would no doubt support the charismatic media personality's bid should he choose to run. Lapierre has expressed interest in merging the PQ with Quebec Solidaire, to form a new permanent rainbow coalition among separatists he feels can return the movement to its left wing roots and make a legitimate run for government during the next federal election.
