Duly Quoted: Bob Rae

“I’m not going to be crazy uncle Bob coming down from the attic every once in a while to make a speech to the kids.”

—During an emotional press conference this morning, Rae, a 35-year political veteran and former Ontario premier who recently finished a stint as interim leader of the federal Liberal party, announced that he’d be stepping down from his position as MP for Toronto Centre. The quote above, reported by the Post, seems to suggest that he’ll be keeping a hand in politics, at least. Even so, he specifically denied that he’d be seeking Toronto’s mayoralty in 2014. He told reporters that he plans to focus, instead, on negotiating Northern Ontario mining issues with First Nations communities.
