View Full Version : Controversial Quebec Liberal to Remain in Race

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011, 03:59 PM
André Forbes, the Manicouagan Liberal who once called First Nations people "featherheads" and lazy, is staying in the election race.

Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff said last week the party was removing Forbes as a candidate, but Forbes said Monday morning he's staying in the race. He says he'll bill himself as an independent candidate.

However, he'll still be on the ballot as a Liberal, because he's not stepping down, and the party can't fire him now that he's been nominated. That means the party apparently won't be able to run a candidate in the riding.

The riding is currently held by Bloc MP Gerald Asselin, who won a third term in 2008, and wasn't expected to change hands.


Good for him. It is good that someone who has some sort of say is telling it like is is! First Nations people are extremely lazy and Pathetic.
