Jean Charest leaving politics

hi-charestflag-852.jpgAn era in Quebec politics is coming to an end. Jean Charest, leader of the Quebec Liberals, is hanging up his hat after nine years as Premier and 14 years as leader. Former Sherbrooke Mayor Jean Perreault was his campaign manager this time around and speaks to us about his thoughts on Charest's decision.
