MONTREAL — Former NDP leader Tom Mulcair is becoming a political pundit for different TV and radio networks in Quebec.
Mulcair will appear on Montreal radio station CJAD 800 twice a day, as of Aug. 28.
He will also be on CTV News Channel twice a week.
And the fluently bilingual Mulcair will be giving his political opinions on the French-language TVA network as of Aug. 13, appearing on a show called “La Joute.”
Mulcair, 63, announced last February he would teach in the political science department at Universite de Montreal this year.
Mulcair was elected as an NDP MP in a byelection in 2007 before becoming leader in 2012 following the sudden death of Jack Layton, who’d led the party to official Opposition status for the first time in its history.
Six months after the NDP finished a distant third in the 2015 federal election, Mulcair was rejected by his own party members in a leadership review.
He stayed on until Jagmeet Singh became leader last fall.
