SAINT-JEROME, Que. - Media baron Pierre Karl Peladeau shook up the Quebec election campaign on Sunday, announcing he's decided to run for the Parti Quebecois.
Flanked by PQ Leader Pauline Marois, Peladeau told a news conference he's worked for 25 years to build up Quebecor Media Inc. (TSX:QBR.B) and now wants to devote himself to public service.
Peladeau, until recently the head of the powerful conglomerate, said his dream is to help Quebec become a country.
