Stronach another step closer to political exit
Belinda Stronach, who's stepping down as the MP for Newmarket-Aurora, has also finally given up her duties as the head of the Liberal women's caucus.
Stronach had remained in charge of the women's group even though she announced last spring she wouldn't be running again. She did appear late last fall to unveil Pink Book Two, the Liberals' second set of platform policies for women, but as of today, she's wound down the job. Stronach is returning to the private sector -- specifically to help run the Magna car parts empire founded by her father, Frank.
