CFN – It was a short election, but not a surprising one. As of 9:40 PM tonight Mr. Charest looks to have lost his own riding and his government as PQ leader Pauline Marois becomes the first Woman Premier of the Province of Quebec.
She’s predicted to pull in 58 seats, 5 short of a majority which makes CAQ leader François Legault the potential Kingmaker.
Vote splitting and complaints of election issues could see several recounts as many of the seats were closely contested.
We will be updating this story.
Here in Cornwall Ontario I spoke with Penny Rudderham of the local Royal LePage real estate office who shared that sales in this border city of nearly 50,000 were up a near record 8% for August and 14% year over year with listings down 11%. In other words a very hot market!
This election result just may heat things up even more!
It should be interesting to see what the morning holds for Quebecers and Canadians!
