MONTREAL — A real who’s who of Quebec’s political world attended Tuesday afternoon’s funeral in Montreal for former premier Jacques Parizeau.
There were six past premiers, as well as Philippe Couillard, who currently holds the position.
The ex-premiers at the service were Pierre Marc Johnson, Daniel Johnson, Lucien Bouchard, Bernard Landry, Jean Charest and Pauline Marois.
Federal Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau also attended the event at the Saint-Germain-D’Outremont Church.

Parizeau, who became Parti Québécois leader in 1988 and officially stepped down as premier in January 1996, died on June 1 at the age of 84.
Parizeau is remembered nationally as the PQ premier during the 1995 sovereignty referendum that nearly split Quebec from the rest of Canada.
