Quebec Elections: Conservative Leader Eric Duhaime defeated in Chauveau Riding – Montreal

Quebec Conservative Party leader Eric Duhaime was defeated in the Chauveau area of ​​the Quebec region, according to Global News.

Duhaime, who was hoping to enter the National Assembly for the first time, lost to incumbent Sylvain Levesque of the Avenir Québec (CAQ) coalition, who is expected to win a second majority government.

The Conservatives rose in the polls by capitalizing on public anger at the COVID-19 restrictions, but it’s unclear if that anger will translate into seats.

The party’s lone pre-election seat, held by former CAQ MNA Claire Samson in Iberville, switched back to the CAQ on Monday.

Under Duhaime, the Quebec Conservative Party has gone from less than two percent of the vote in 2018 to a mid-teen poll but was yet to fight for a seat as of Monday night.

The other party leaders fared better: alongside CAQ leader Francois Legault, Quebec Liberal leader Dominique Anglade and Quebec Solidaire co-speakers Manon Masse and Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois were all re-elected for their Montreal-area riders.

Parti Quebecois leader Paul St-Pierre Plamondon was behind Camille-Laurin but this race has yet to be called.
