Quebec Votes

The National Post is the only place so far that has a graphic representation of the vote breakdown.  As in the case of Alberta, the pollsters seemed to have missed a last minute swing away from the party favored to win. Maybe for the same reason, too.  Marois ran a profoundly xenophobic campaign and was getting called out for it pretty heavily towards the end, although its hard to say what effect a bunch of yelling anglophone journos from outside of Quebec can actually have within that province's borders.

In any case, not a bad result for The ROC. And with Charest losing his seat, maybe we have another francophone contender for the LPoC leadership race.
