MONTREAL - Quebec's own version of WikiLeaks is launching today -- without any leaks to report.
QuebecLeaks is the brainchild of a onetime Parti Quebecois member, who quit the party in frustration.
The Quebec site, inspired by the WikiLeaks model, aims to publish compromising documents in the province.
The catch: founder Luc Lefebvre says he hadn't received any documents to release before the launch date.
Lefebvre, who works in marketing, left the PQ in early 2010 after publicly complaining about Leader Pauline Marois.
But Lefebvre says his past political affiliations won't have any bearing on the QuebecLeaks work.
