MONTREAL - The Bloc Quebecois is looking for a new leader as Daniel Paille's two-year stint in charge came to a sudden end Monday when he announced he has epilepsy.
Paille made his departure official at Bloc headquarters in Montreal, surrounded by party faithful and its four current MPs.
"I am leaving for health reasons," he said, calling his departure a preventive measure — both for his own health and that of the party. "I have been having health problems for the last few months and it turns out it is epilepsy."
