He says that he is a descendant of Irish and Lebanese immigrants and that he “wouldn't exist if Canada had walls.” He officially dropped out of the race for leadership on April 26, 2017.

Then he said that even though he thought he could win, it would be “selfish” of him to keep running because he didn't have much support in Quebec, and it would be hard for him to beat Justin Trudeau in 2019.
