Guy Caron becomes third candidate in NDP race
Quebec MP Guy Caron is joining the race to lead the NDP, bringing to three the number of candidates so far in the race to succeed Tom Mulcair. Caron, an economist who was first elected to the House of Commons in 2011, made the announcement Monday in Gatineau, Que. The slow-starting race to replace Mulcair has been gaining steam in recent weeks, with northern Ontario MP Charlie Angus and B.C. MP Peter Julian also in the running. A leadership debate is scheduled for March 12 in Ottawa.
