The Coalition Avenir Quebec party is losing one of its biggest names.
Christian Dubé is quitting political life and going to work for the Caisse de dépôt et placement, Quebec's pension fund manager.
Dubé and CAQ leader Francois Legault made the announcement at a news conference in Lévis, the Quebec City-area riding Dubé has represented since 2012.
The accountant and former business executive was finance critic and one of the CAQ's more recognizable faces as the party won 22 seats last April, good for third party standing.
A party spokesman says Dubé won't accept a severance package that is usually given to departing provincial politicians.
