Former Canadian astronaut Marc Garneau is walking away from politics and has told supporters that he will not be seeking the Liberal nomination in the riding of Westmount-Ville Marie
or any other riding. Marc Garneau quit his job as the chief of Canada's space agency and ran unsuccessfully for the Liberals in Vaudreuil-Soulanges
during the 2006 Federal election.
Mr. Garneau had approached the Liberals earlier this year about being their candidate in the Outremont by election. Stephan Dion hand picked the candidate and we all know how well that worked for the Libs.National Post
