SAINT-JEROME, Que. - The Parti Quebecois is set to announce that media baron Pierre Karl Peladeau will run for the party in the provincial election.
A source told The Canadian Press that Peladeau will confirm his candidacy at an 11:40 a.m. news conference in Saint-Jerome, Que.
Rumours have been swirling for months that Peladeau would run for the PQ.
