Fatima Houda-Pepin says she didn't ask for PQ support
Parti Québécois's backing hasn't changed former Liberal's views on sovereignty or the charter
Fatima Houda-Pepin, who was ousted from the Liberal caucus over her stance on the charter of values earlier this year, has found support in former adversaries this election.
But Houda-Pepin says she's not joining the PQ and she still wouldn't vote for its secular charter as it stands now.
"What the PQ announced on March 14 is their decision," she told CBC Montreal's Daybreak.
"I never asked, neither to the PQ nor the [Coalition Avenir Québec], not to run candidates in the riding of La Pinière. I have run for six elections till now … Why did they vote for Fatima Houda-Pepin? They vote for the person rather than for the party and they let me know every time.”
