According to The Globe and Mail, Green Party of Canada deputy leader Georges Laraque is going to run in a Montreal, Quebec area by-election. In Canada a by-election is a special election to fill a seat in the House of Commons between elections. The big announcement is planned for tomorrow morning.

The party has issued a statement saying there will be an announcement tomorrow at a reception hall “regarding the riding of Bourassa.”

The seat was vacated when Bourassa Liberal MP Denis Coderre resigned to run for mayor.
