Canadian politician in Quebec, and the leader of the Parti Québécois since October 2016. He was first elected a member of the National Assembly of Quebec in the 2012 Quebec election in the electoral district of Rosemont. He served concurrently as the Minister of International Relations, the Francophonie, External Trade as well as the minister responsible for the Montreal region in the cabinet of Pauline Marois from 2012 to 2014.
Lisée holds a licence in laws from the Université de Montréal, a master in communication studies from the UQAM and a degree in journalism from the Centre de formation des journalistes in Paris. In the 1980s, he was a reporter in Paris and Washington for both Canadian and French media. During that decade, he began an expansive investigation into 30 years of American political, diplomatic, financial and media attention toward Quebec and its independence movement, resulting in the book In the Eye of the Eagle, published in 1990. It won the Governor General's Award for non-fiction. Two books followed: Le Tricheur and Le Naufrageur, both of which were highly critical of former Quebec Premier Robert Bourassa. According to Lisée, his refusal to support sovereignty in the context of the Meech Lake Accord failure left many Quebec nationalists feeling betrayed.
