Parti Quebecois Premier Pauline Marois is in Europe this week on a five day visit to the United Kingdom and Switzerland, but she will no doubt be briefed on the results of the latest Leger Marketing survey indicating that the PQ is reaching levels of popular support that could mean a majority government.
The survey also shows growing support for the Charter of Values.
69% of francophones now say they approve of measures to restrict the wearing of religious garb in the public sector, while 26% of anglophones and allophones approve.
The Leger poll also puts PQ support at 36% with the Liberals at 33% and the CAQ at 17%.
The Liberals have lost 4 points since September and with 43 % of francophones supporting the PQ, pollster Christian Bourque says the PQ are on track for a slight majority.
