Plus ça change...

Remember 2004?
When Martin named Jean Lapierre his top man in Quebec in February, the former MP and radio commentator was meant to lead the Liberal push to siphon support from the Bloc.

But Lapierre ended up in battles within his own party after he dismissed the Clarity Act as "useless" and said the law setting ground rules for Quebec sovereignty referendums "wouldn't change a thing."

Some Liberal candidates called on Martin to dump Lapierre, with one accusing the Quebec lieutenant of picking "cockfights" with the Bloc.

Lapierre disappeared from sight during the last few weeks of the campaign and was replaced on the front lines by veteran cabinet ministers Pierre Pettigrew and Stephane Dion.
The cock crows again.
