Election Briefs: Robocalls, 450 and QS Optimistic
450 key for CAQ
It's a last push for CAQ leader Francois Legault and he is focusing all of his energy on the 450, areas to the north and south of Montreal.
From Mascouche to Mirabel, Legault is trying to convince suburbanites to vote CAQ.
He is also counting on the supoort of anglos but recognizes that some may be reluctant to vote for a new party.
The Liberals have filed a complaint with the SQ and the Director General of Elections about alleged fraudulent calls to voters in those key areas of Laval and Quebec City.
They claim English robocalls have been made to voters in the Quebec City area, falsely identifying themselves as Liberals.
They also say real people have been making fraudulent calls to voters in Laval. It claims those callers repeatedly call voters in an aggressive manner pretending to be Jean Charest's party.
Four Ridings for QS?
Quebec Solidaire leaders are the only ones to wrap up their campaign in the city.
Party workers say they're confident in winning as many as four seats in Montreal. Co-leader Amir Khadir is expected to retain his seat in the Mercier riding, while Francoise David is in a close race with the PQ in Gouin.
David is also feeling the love from at least a few Anglos. Khadir encourages Anglos to look at all other options beyond the Liberal party, saying that QS will always respect democratic rights and hear out concerns.
