Former Quebec Premier Bernard Landry Dead At 81

One of Quebec’s staunchest crusaders for separation has died. Former Quebec premier Bernard Landry was 81. Landry, premier between 2001 and 2003, dedicated decades of his life to the sovereigntist cause and was part of every significant political battle fought by the P-Q since its inception in 1968. His health had been failing in recent months, and in mid-October he began receiving visits from old friends and political allies at his home in Vercheres. Landry was at home alongside his family when he died of complications from a pulmonary disease.
