It is still too early to determine if the Parti Quebecois will hold a minority or majority government.
Shortly before 9 p.m., the PQ was in the lead with 58 seats. It was claimed in Charlevoix-Cote-de-Beaupre, Gaspe, Labelle, Lac St-Jean, Mercheres, Roberval, Rimouski, Richelieu, Rene-Levesque, Pointe-aux-Trembles, Matane-Matapedia, and others.
Notable wins: Kathleen Weil, Liberals in Notre-Dame de Grace; Acadie; Chapleau; Chomedy; D'Arcy McGee; Gatineau; Jacques Cartier; Jeanne-Mance-Viger....
Quebecers headed to the polls in huge numbers today. So far, voter turnout is at 52.74 percent.
During the last provincial election in 2008, total turnout was recorded at 57.8 percent -- a record low turnout since 1927.
This evening, the Liberals and the Parti Quebecois are dancing with very close numbers. In the West Island riding of Jacques Cartier, the Liberal (Geoff Kelley) party was elected. Jean-Marc Fournier was elected in the riding of St-Laurent.
More to come....
