Liberal President steps down for health reasons

This is one of those rare occasions where partisanship should be put aside by all... Liberal Party President Senator Marie Poulin has tendered her resignation to Mr. Dion beacause of personal health issues.

I too wish her a speedy recovery.

Statement by Liberal Leader St├ęphane Dion on the Resignation of Liberal Party President Senator Marie Poulin

PRESS RELEASE
Date: April 22, 2008
For release: Immediate

It is with great regret that I have accepted Senator Marie Poulin's resignation as National President of the Liberal Party of Canada due to health concerns.

Since being elected President of the Party in December 2006, she has presided over one of the most profound renewals in Party history. Thanks to her professionalism and passion for Liberal values, she was able to foster a fundamental grassroots shift in the Liberal Party's culture. Only the second woman President in Liberal Party's history, Senator Poulin's legacy also includes an open and personable approach to communications with Party members, officials and Canadians.

On behalf of the entire Liberal family, I wish to extend my heartfelt thanks to my friend and colleague for her dedication and service to the Liberal Party. I wish her a full and speedy recovery.
