Monday is Election Day in Quebec.

6 million people are eligible to cast a ballot.

It's being called one of the nastiest provincial election campaigns in decades, with mud-slinging over ethics and whether or not there would be another sovereignty referendum.

Premier Pauline Marois has expressed optimism her government will hang on to power, however her Parti Quebecois is trailing in opinion polls.

There has been a surge in support for the 3rd-place coalition party, prompting Quebec Liberal leader Philippe Couillard to warn casting a ballot for the coalition could split the vote and return the Parti Quebecois to power.

    The 1010 listeners should be hoping that the Liberals win this one as they gain in the polling as does the CAQ. Looks like another minority gov't though...

    There was an article last week or the week before where some of the Indians in Quebec said they'd separate as well and form their own little country if Quebec separates. Since we'd be getting rid of two giant leeches from the federal budget, I say go ahead and separate, and good riddance!
