CAQ leader Francois Legault has expressecd concerns about Pierre Karl Peladeau's candidacy.
PQ leader Pauline Marois announced Sunday the media baron is the party's candidate in St Jerome.
Peladeau was, until recently, head of president of Quebecor Media Inc. (TSX:QBR.B), which controls the tabloid newspaper Journal de Montreal and the French-language TVA television network.
According to Legault, Peladeau's candidacy will lead to biased coverage.
Last year, Peladeau stepped down as Quebecor CEO to take a post as chairman of Hydro Quebec.
He said Sunday he had stepped down from that post as well.
Liberal leader Philippe Couillard doesn't seem that impressed with Peladeau's candidacy, adding it doesn't change the campaign debate much,adding the choice Quebecers face come election day is the same.
Quebec Solidaire's Francoise David has harsh words, saying Peladeau is the king of lockouts, and has been one of Quebec most inflexible bosses.
Couillard also announced Sunday a Liberal government would share royalties from natural resources with municipalities.
