Decision day in Quebec
Ferry sinking report released
Chinese government officials talk labour

Decision day in Quebec
Too close to call – that’s how pundits view Quebec’s tight election race. Premier Jean Charest is calling for Quebecers to give him a majority government, but as voters hit the polls today both Mario Dumont of the populist Action democratique du Quebec and Parti Quebecois Leader Andre Boisclair remain contenders. SFU political science professor Laurent Dobuzinskis, Quebec historian Jack Little and assistant professor Jorge Calderon, in the department of French, can provide election day insight.
