Quebec Votes: The Victory & The Violence - David Gutnick
If you were watching last night, a victorious PQ leader, Pauline Marois was speaking English and suddenly pulled off the stage by her security detail. You know from the news that one man is dead, another man is injured and a 62-year-old man hs been arrested.
Our colleague CBC's David Gutnick is in Montreal and he joined Anna Maria to give us the latest.
Quebec Votes: The Victory & The Violence - Panel
Last night's violence cast a pall over the PQ's celebration, but it shouldn't overshadow the political shift... Nearly 75-percent (74.61%) of eligible voters cast ballots - up 20 percent from the last election. They not only ousted the Liberals, Jean Charest lost his seat. The Parti Quebecois with Pauline Marois will form a minority government.
In our Montreal studio this morning:
Marlene Jennings, former Federal Liberal MP and current Executive Director of the Montreal YM-YWHA.
Guy Lachapelle, professor of Political Science at Concordia University, and a former candidate for the PQ.
And Antonia Maioni, who is a professor of political science at McGill University.
