Against all expectations, René Lévesque, leader of the Parti Québécois, is elected premier on November 15, 1976. His new government undertakes major reforms before proposing its boldest plan: the separation of Quebec. The plan will fail in the May 1980 referendum, but Lévesque will continue to defend Quebec’s interests in the face of all opposition. And above all, at the cost of his health. First and foremost a democrat, Lévesque did not achieve his great dream, but his contribution to Quebec’s modernization makes him a leading light of his time.
