Duceppe not favorite in Quebec for leadership of PQ according to overnight polls.
Caucus members say the decision is up to him.
Will the Bloc survive if Duceppe leaves-of course it will. Conservatives and Liberals too extreme for most Quebec voters. (Extreme? The PQ ain't extreme?)
Rosemary Barton on with Newman today-what happened to Bonner? Codere thinks Duceppe leaving would be good for Grits as Quebec will want to have more members on govt side.
Breaking news. RCMP have arrested employee of Enviroment dept for leaking a document. Remember the secret document ending up in ON Preem's Smarter Brother's hands a few weeks ago. Got it under false pretenses. Supposedly faxed to wrong number. Now, she is in trouble with RCMP.
Found Susan, she is in the foyer getting reaction from Bloc Caucus.

Iggy is MAD, again asking for O'Connor to be fired.

Duceppe- Question on loopholes in tax policies. Wants the Barbados loophole shut. Diane Abolonzy congrats the Bloc for working on this study.
Discussion section 5907 that allows corporations to avoid tax on profits from overseas.
