Pierre Karl Péladeau is certainly a get for the PQ, but what's the impact on the other parties in this race?
In the latest instalment of his video blog, CBC's senior political editor in Quebec, Bernard St-Laurent, talks about what could go right and what could go wrong for the PQ with their latest star candidate on board.
St-Laurent is the host of Radio Noon Montreal and C'est la Vie.
He has covered all the major political events in the province from the election of the Parti Québecois in 1976 on. He will share his insight throughout the 2014 provincial election online in Bernie's Election Blog and on CBC television and radio.
