Yeah, he was thinking of it:
Ex-Habs coach-turned-Conservative Senator Jacques Demers is hinting he may quit the Senate, telling reporters that he's disgusted with the events of the past week, and believes that Canadians are tarring all senators with the same brush.
But then he thought better of it (Google-translated from the French):
The message from Prime Minister Stephen Harper before the caucus Tuesday morning.... convinced him to stay.
Ah well. The guy's still my favorite Harper Senate appointment. In fact I think the guy is a saint. Definitely what he did back in the 80's with the St. Louis Blues was a miracle.
