NDP MP Romeo Saganash has pulled out of the leadership race. He cites a lack of money and support as well as family and health reasons for bowing out.

We play revealing highlights of the former Cree leader's recent interview with Bernard St-Laurent on C'est La Vie. He talks candidly about his life, residential schools and his elderly mother who lives near Waswanipi in northern Quebec.

Two other candidates with Quebec links remain: Brian Topp who was born in Quebec and Thomas Mulcair, the NDP member for Outremont. Saganash did not give his support to another leadership hopeful.
