Liberal MP Nicola Di Iorio resigns, citing family reasons

Nicola Di Iorio, Liberal MP for Saint-Léonard—Saint Michel, announced Wednesday he is leaving political life, citing family reasons.

Di Iorio, who has represented the Montreal-area riding since the last federal election in October 2015, informed reporters of his departure following Wednesday's caucus meeting.

"My loved ones matter to me," he said. "Their well-being is of utmost importance to me, and I've been away three years, and I do have to consider also their needs and their well-being."

Di Iorio has not yet set a departure date, but expects to leave by this summer.

Di Iorio won his seat in 2015 with just under 65 per cent of the vote. His riding has been held by the Liberals since it was created.
