http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-19478694Quebec's Parti Quebecois set for election victoryThe separatist Parti Quebecois is heading for victory in parliamentary elections in the Canadian French-speaking province of Quebec.Preliminary results indicate the party is on course to win 58 of the 125 seats and form a minority government after nine years in opposition.It is unclear whether a PQ victory will lead to a new referendum on separation from the rest of Canada. Just curious as to what Canadians on this board think of this latest bit of news? When I was in grad school, I had a Canadian friend who lamented about the "referendum never-endum" situation. Reading the article, it would appear another referendum is unlikely. The PQ doesn't have an outright majority and polls do not indicate that the local population want another referendum. Of course if economic problems continue in Quebec, wouldn't that ultimately give the PQ the support they need?
