Quebec Election Imminent

A Quebec election looks imminent. Here's some news to consider.

Stephen Haper won't get involved in Quebec's election campaign by siding with the Liberals or the right-wing ADQ.

Jean Charest seems to be attarcting more star candidates than Boisclair and the PQ.

The latest poll pegs support for the parties as follows:

Liberals 36%
PQ 31%
ADQ 21%
QS 5%
Green 5%

Due to the continued use of an antiquated first-past-the-post system in Quebec, the Liberals need to beat the PQ by 5 points in order to be guaranteed a victory.
