After the École Polytechnique massacre on December 6, 1989, in which 14 women where murdered by Marc Lepine, she lobbied for the public release of the gunman's suicide letter. It was leaked to her on November 22, 2000 and was subsequently published in La Presse. The letter included a list of 19 prominent Quebec feminists whom Marc Lepine had apparently wished to target, and her name was one of those listed. She has been a commentator on the PBS program, The Editors, and has worked as a correspondent for CBC Television on The National Magazine and as a co-host of the fifth estate. Since leaving the CBC, Pelletier has become a documentary filmmaker, having produced Monsieur, a film about former Quebec Premier Jacques Parizeau.
