Pierre Karl Peladeau is an old-fashioned Media Baron, fully controlling much of the music, publishing, and news industries in Quebec. As journalist Martin Patriquin tells it, he is also a vindictive and powerful enemy of those who cross him or ask the wrong questions. Now, he is also a politician, with a sovereign Quebec as his goal.
