Quebec's right wing welcomes Smith run

Duhaime calls jump a 'breath of fresh air'


Larry Smith's arrival on the Quebec political scene is being welcomed by the province's right wing.

In a glowing column published in the Quebecor-Sun chain of newspapers yesterday, Eric Duhaime said Smith's decision to jump into the political arena comes as a "breath of fresh air."

"Seriously, we should commend people like Smith for having the balls and faith to jump into the arena," Duhaime wrote. "We all wish more people of his stature would do the same for all political parties.

"Quebec needs a cleanup led by a few Mr. Cleans."

Smith, former president of the Alouettes football franchise, was named a senator in December but promptly announced plans to seek the Conservative nomination in the West Island riding of Lac St. Louis to run in the next federal election.
