Though their political views may not align, Tom Mulcair is tied by blood with Bloc Quebecois leader Gilles Duceppe and Liberal leader Justin Trudeau.
Bloc Quebecois leader Gilles Duceppe says he will step down as the leader of his party. The party will meet Tuesday to decide what steps it will take after the longtime leader of the separatist party in the House of Commons lost his seat to the NDP and witnessed his party reduced to three seats in Parliament. At dissolution, the Bloc held 47 seats.
Despite the barrage of questions and accusations aimed at Conservative leader Stephen Harper during tonight’s federal debate, his image won’t be tarnished, says one political analyst.
