Jean-Francois Lisée's assistant chief of staff has quit because of the Quebec Charter of Values.
Christine Fréchette quit Friday, according to La Presse, because she could not defend the Charter.
She stayed on the job over the last few months because she was hoping that during the parliamentary commission, the party would tone down the rhetoric. Instead, it is launching an election and hoping for a majority so the charter can become law.
Frechette is quoted saying the Charter will be an important part of the campaign and she isn't comfortable defending it.
