Quebec By-election results

UPDATE: I never thought I'd see a headline like this from the CBC, so I had to take a screen cap to save it for posterity...

The night is far from over, but in Roberval--Lac-Saint-Jean, with 170 of 194 polls reporting, the results are...

Conservative - Denis Lebel - 14,428 58.9%
Bloc Québécois - Céline Houde - 6,695 27.3%
Liberal - Louise Boulanger - 2,375 9.7%

Methinks that the Bloc ain't going to be able to pull 8,000 votes out of 24 polls!

Congrats to our newest Conservative MP, Denis Lebel!!!

As for Saint-Hyacinthe--Bagot, the Bloc is ahead of us by a mere 500 votes, with only 50 of 224 polls reporting.

And in Outremont... well, looks like Mr. Dion is not going to sleep too well tonight. Though only 55 of 168 polls have reported so far, the NDP are already up by over 1,200 votes... it's starting to look like the pundits had this one called right on all along.

UPDATE II: With 130 of 168 polls reporting in, it's fairly safe to call this one...

Liberal - Jocelyn Coulon - 4,849 (28.7%)
NDP-New Democratic Party - Thomas Mulcair - 8,304 (49.1%)

Dion's hand picked candidate goes down in flames in Outremont.

The CBC report puts it well... "NDP clinches Outremont byelection - Tories take Saguenay riding in decisive victory - The Liberal Party of Canada appears to have been shut out of three byelections in Quebec."

    This is a great in itself that CBC would not make it a continuation of the "Dion Chronicles" as CTV is doing.
    And tho the stories of Lib infighting continue to be blamed for these results, let's give credit to the voters in Quebec who have DECIDED.
    Check out SDA for the actual numbers...victory for the CPC with more than 36% of the popular vote!
