Legault casts ballot and shakes hands
"A good day, Mr. Legault?" asks CJAD reporter Claude Beaulieu as the CAQ leader walked into an elementary school to cast his ballot in his riding of l'Assomption.
"Yeah, be a good day," he responds.
Before the cameras and micorphones outside the school, Legault pounded the nail thay holds his platform together: the need for change and for a break from the sovereignty debate.
A little later, Legault and his entourage descended upon a local eatery to shake a few hands among the lunch hour crowd. The reception by patrons was friendly, one woman telling Legault: "I didn't vote for you when you were with the PQ, but I'm voting for you now."
L'Assomption riding has long been in the PQ camp, notably during the Jacques Parizeau years. The PQ last won the riding in 2008 by a more than 4000 vote margin.
