Daniel Paillé will announce his resignation as leader of the Bloc Quebecois this afternoon.
Paillé , who took over the job two years ago, replacing Gilles Duceppe will apparently cite health reasons for his decision.
Paillé will make the announcement at Bloc Quebecois headquarters on Crémazie at 1:30pm.
The Bloc was decimated in the 2011 federal election winning only four seats.
Paillé lost his own riding of Hochelaga in that campaign.
