Infighting spreads among Quebec separatists

New sovereigntist group holds inaugural meeting in Montreal over the weekend

The Parti Québécois was struggling to contain infighting among Quebec sovereigntists this weekend, when a new separatist rival group—Un Nouveau Mouvement pour le Québec—held its first meeting. Three former PQ MNAs—Pierre Curzi, Lisette Lapointe and Jean-Martin Aussant—attended the new group’s day-long colloquium in Montreal on Sunday, where the PQ’s go-slow approach to holding a referendum came under serious attack. Critics of the new organization argue that it risks splitting the sovereigntist vote.
