In case you missed it, the Quebec victims advocate, Pierre Boisvenu is on the short-list for the Canadian Senate.
Would he accept should it be offered? Difficult to tell. Pierre was offered leadership of the ADQ and immediately declined (his rationale was that he could effect more change being on the sidelines of political power).
The Senate? When I emailed him about it he refused to address the question. You can be sure of this, Pierre has done the calculus: a Senate appointment is a double-edged sword, they appoint you to pacify you.
