E-Day in Quebec

For political science folks like myself, the most interesting elections to watch and analyze are the ones where you have no clue who is going to win. That would be an understatement in Quebec, where theoretically any of the 3 parties could end up winning the most seats, though not necessarily the government to go along with it. We could see a 1985 Ontario minority scenario shaping up – where the Liberals had less seats then the Conservatives, but were supported by the NDP and became the government. The permutations and combinations of things that could happen tonight are very fascinating, and I’ll be keeping a close eye on it.

Democraticspace.com (run by Greg Morrow) has predicted the Liberals will hang on by the skin of their teeth and form a minority government with 55 seats. Greg’s predictions have been pretty accurate in the past on other elections, so I again will be interested to see how well he does here.

    Normally i would agree with you, but Prison Break and 24 are on tonight, so bye-bye election coverage!
