26 March

The 2007 Quebec Provincial Election is underway. When I visited two different polling stations this morning and this afternoon, the traffic was very light, but the close election race is supposed to presage a good turnout. Presumably is will appear in the evening before the polls close at 8pm.

As usual, the "PQ" party has a platform that calls for succession from Quebec from Canada. This is a genuine threat and they almost got approval in a past referendum. Two other parties are almost tied in the polls, and the numbers are far too close to call the outcome in advance.

By 10:21pm the election result, a minority Liberal Party government was declared, with the ADQ party in second place. This will probably have a major (negative) impact on the separatist PQ party.
