Liberal Leader In No Rush To Get A Seat In The Legislature

The new provincial Liberal leader says he will bide his time and not force any M-L-A out so he can get a seat in the Legislature. 

Brian Gallant calls doing that "old politics" and tells CHSJ News he doesn't view not being in the Legislature as a disadvantage because it has freed him up to travel around and begin rebuilding the party to fight the next election. 

On the other hand, being in the Legislature would raise his profile in the eyes of the public. 

Gallant says there will be discussions in the future about all possibilities but, if history is any indication, there will be a byelection called at some point before the next provincial election.
