She is now mayor of Saint-Adolphe D'Howard. She is the widow of Jacques Parizeau, former Premier of Quebec, Canada.

On June 6, 2011, Lapointe and caucus mates Louise Beaudoin and Pierre Curzi resigned from the Parti Québécois to sit as independents over the PQ's acceptance of a bill changing the law to permit an agreement between the City of Québec and Quebecor Inc. concerning the construction of an arena in Quebec City. In November 2011, several media outlets reported that she joined the new sovereigntist party Option nationale, led by fellow former PQ caucus member Jean-Martin Aussant. However, while she has bought a membership card from the party, she also retained her membership in the Parti Québécois, and continued to sit as an independent.
