PQ politician and media mogul Pierre Karl Peladeau has been released from hospital less than a week after a bicycle crash left with a brain injury and fractured bones.

Peladeau, 53, a Quebec MNA and former Quebecor CEO, crashed his bicycle in Montreal’s Eastern Townships last Sunday, May 18.

He fractured his ribs, shoulder and pelvis and suffered a minor traumatic brain injury. His doctors said he wouldn’t walk for three months.

His ex-girlfriend, television host Julie Snyder, said his helmet saved his life.

Peladeau missed the opening of the provincial legislature this week, but said he plans to return to duties as soon as possible, in a wheelchair, if necessary.
