Payette memorial today

Mourners will gather to remember former Parti Quebecois cabinet minister Lise Payette at a ceremony in Montreal today.

Quebec Premier Francois Legault is among those expected to attend an official memorial organized by the Quebec government.

It is set to begin at 3 p.m.

The public is also invited to pay their respects by signing a book of condolences at City Hall.

The Quebec feminist, author, journalist, politician and television personality died in September at the age of 87.

There will be no religious element to today's service in accordance with Payette's wishes.
