Former Parti Québécois leader Pierre Karl Péladeau isn't ruling out an eventual return to politics.

The Quebecor CEO made the comments during a brief appearance at a party meeting in Montreal on Sunday.

Peladeau was chosen as the sovereigntist party's leader in 2015 but resigned a year later, citing family reasons.

On Sunday, he told reporters that the reasons that led him to step down haven't changed, but that he remains a committed sovereignist.

Péladeau wouldn't speculate on when he could return, telling reporters that "only God knows."
