Francois Legault says the CAQ still has a lot of life left in it.
He was in downtown Montreal this morning and saying that the latest poll numbers show support for his party growing - and that he thinks he can ride a wave to victory on Monday.
A Leger poll put support for his party at 23 percent - that's behind the PQ's 29 and the Liberals' 40, but still eight points up from only 10 days ago.
Legault said he is not conceding defeat by any means.
He repeated his assertions against his opponents: Pauline Marois was too focussed on the charter at the expense of the economy, and that Philippe Couillard's association with disgraced ex MUHC chief Arthur Porter and his support for candidate Gaetan Barrette, who received a $1.2-million golden parachute from a medical specialists union, shows he lacks judgement.
"We have to accept that sometimes in your life you make bad calls, and these two calls were bad," he said.
He also repeated his assertion that Couillard is only offering stale promises from his predecessor on jobs.
"Jean Charest presented himself with a board that said he will create 250,000 jobs. I think it's the same board Mr. Couillard used during this campaign," he said.
Legault was in Montreal this morning and will spend the rest of the day on the north and south shores.
