Will Melanie Joly join the CAQ?

The political rookie finished second to Denis Coderre in Montreal's mayoral election

Will she or won't she?

Melanie Joly, who ran for mayor in last November's Montreal election, is downplaying rumours she could join the CAQ.

She says she has no intention of getting into provincial politics, adding she wants to focus on the local arena.

The politcal rookie is scheduled to speak at a conference of the CAQ youth wing next month.

She finished second in the election to Denis Coderre.

Joly garnered 26.5 percent of the votes to Coderre's 32 percent.

    Whether she joins or not, she is a separatist. During the election campaign she was asked several times and she NEVER answered. Anyone that thinks the caq isn't a separatist party is dreaming.
