Do you remember the voice of Richard Bélisle echoing through the halls of parliament? That name will only sound familiar if you watched the House of Commons from 1993 until 1997, when Bélisle was victorious in La Prairie, Que. He lost a 1997 re-election bid, and never returned to the House of Commons. It wasn’t for lack of effort. Bélisle ran again in 2000, 2004, and 2011, and even ran provincially in Quebec in 2008. Soon after his 2011 loss, Bélisle was appointed a part-time member of the Parole Board of Canada. Today, he was appointed a full-time member.
