Robert Félix Lemieux (1941–2008) was a Quebec lawyer who represented several of the defendants in the October Crisis. During the crisis itself he served as a go-between for the FLQ cells and Canadian authorities.

A firm supporter of the Quebec sovereignty movement, Lemieux's public statements in support of the FLQ and its members were a fixture during the political crisis and subsequent trials. He argued that the death of Pierre Laporte could be attributed in part to the invocation of the War Measures Act by Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau.[1]
