Liberal MP Nicola Di Iorio quitting politics

By Canadian Press. Published on Apr 25, 2018 1:20pm



OTTAWA — Popular Quebec Liberal MP Nicola Di Iorio says he is leaving politics for family reasons.

Di Iorio, who broke the news following today’s caucus meeting, was first elected to the House of Commons in 2015 to represent the Montreal riding of Saint-Leonard-Saint-Michel.

He says he has yet to establish a departure date.

A lawyer before entering the Commons, Di Iorio taught law and specialized in labour and employment law.

He says he plans to continue working on issues that resonate with him, including the ongoing social impact of technological advances.

Di Iorio won his seat with a landslide victory, claiming nearly 65 per cent of the vote.

Nicola Di Iorio, Liberal MP for Saint-Léonard—Saint Michel, announced Wednesday he is leaving political life, citing family reasons.

Di Iorio, who has represented the Montreal-area riding since the last federal election in October 2015, informed reporters of his departure following Wednesday's caucus meeting.

"My loved ones matter to me," he said. "Their well-being is of utmost importance to me, and I've been away three years, and I do have to consider also their needs and their well-being."


Di Iorio has not yet set a departure date, but expects to leave by this summer.


Di Iorio won his seat in 2015 with just under 65 per cent of the vote. His riding has been held by the Liberals since it was created.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Di Iorio said he has achieved the goals he set for himself when he decided to enter federal politics three years ago, citing his work to prevent impaired driving and a federal commitment earlier this year to extend the Montreal Metro's Blue line.

Harassment allegations

Last year, Opposition MPs called on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to "step up" and discipline Di Iorio when he was accused of making a sexist remark about a Conservative MP while attending a House of Commons committee.

Di Iorio later publicly apologized in the House of Commons.

While it may not seem it;
This is a riding that is more Conservative than it appears.

Massimo Pacetti was one of the more Conservative Liberals in their caucus and the Liberals have always been good about selecting electable candidates.

There are no shortage of folks who could run for the CPC here.

as it sounds like his resignation may be imminent or by summer it appears it will trigger a by election which must be called , even though the winner will only be mp for less than a year before 2019 election


but skeptical it turn into a serious cpc prospect , they'll have no trouble finding a candidate for the riding but only been getting 10%-15% in recent elections , that is a long way off what is needed to win a riding


also doesn't appear to be a riding that have any potential for Singh , an Italian Canadian riding in Montreal , would not appear to be the place for Singh to run and only year the ndp did well was 2011 which might of been a fluke

I am equally skeptical;
However I am just stating that with the right candidate we could secure a better outcome;

Saint-Léonard—Saint-Michel isn't a typical Montreal riding.

If there was a Montreal riding the CPC had a chance, this should be among them.

it would seem that the seats which have come open this parliament and had by elections have been very favourable to the liberals ( with the exception of the 5 by elections the cpc won in alberta/sask ) and possibly Chicoutimi whenever its actually called

if you look thru the list , some of the most liberal ridings in the country like Ottawa Vanier , Saint Laurent , Scarborough Agincourt , a safe Newfoundland riding , plus 2 vulnerable cpc ridings they only won in 2015 cause they had high profile well liked candidates running in them


and now possibly Outremont and Saint Leonard Saint Michel in Montreal both of which have been very good to the liberals historically and the sense is the ndp only won Outremont cause of Mulcair himself

isn't much reason for Scheer to be excited about the possibility of 2 by elections in Montreal this fall , in seats the cpc has never really targeted or done well in , but the cpc did well in Scarborough Agincourt so its possible they do better than expected in this riding as well

(news of a possible liberal candidate although would seem like an odd choice in a riding known for having a large Italian population and traditionally had mp's of that origin )


Imam could run for federal Liberals in Montreal byelection


Imam who brought listeners to tears with eulogy for victims of Quebec City mosque massacre could enter politics.

Presse Canadienne
Updated: June 3, 2018



A Quebec imam who touched hearts across the country and around the world with his homily on the 2017 massacre in a Quebec City mosque is considering running in an upcoming byelection for the Liberal Party of Canada.

Hassan Guillet, the spokesman for the Quebec Council of Imams, said he is considering seeking the federal Liberal nomination in Saint-Léonard–Saint-Michel.

A byelection to replace Liberal MP Nicola Di Iorio, who announced his resignation in April, could be announced in the near future. Di Iorio is still sitting as MP.

Guillet acknowledged to La Presse that he had been approached by the federal Liberals, but said his mind was not yet 100-per-cent made up. However, he said he had announced to Muslims in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, 45 kilometres southeast of Montreal, where he preaches, that his sermon Friday “could be the last one for some time.”

Guillet said he respected the Liberal Party of Canada for its “openness, multiculturalism and respect for others.”


In his eulogy for three of the six victims gunned down on Jan. 29, 2017, in the Islamic Cultural Centre of Quebec City, Guillet brought listeners to tears when he said that killer Alexandre Bissonnette was himself a victim of hatred. “Before he planted bullets in the heads of his victims, somebody planted ideas more dangerous than the bullets in his head,” Guillet said in his extemporaneous speech.

His words were acclaimed around the world, including by J. K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series, on Twitter.
