PARIS - Parti Quebecois Leader Pierre Karl Peladeau will marry longtime partner Julie Snyder in Quebec City this summer.

While it was previously known the couple would wed, Peladeau, 53, announced the Aug. 15 date in an interview with Paris Match on Thursday.

Snyder, 47, is a well-known TV personality in Quebec and has been with Peladeau for about 15 years.
