On election night, Global News had up-to-the-minute live Quebec election results, with a live blog that started at 6 p.m. ET and a live-streaming election special that began at 8 p.m. ET after the polls closed.
After one of the nastiest election campaigns the province has seen in decades, the results in the Quebec election were clear.
In a win that could signify a devastating blow to the sovereignty movement, Philippe Couillard led the Quebec Liberal Party to a majority government in the Quebec election.
Global Montreal’s senior news anchor Jamie Orchard hosted a four-hour election special, which started online at 8 p.m. ET and was broadcast on Global Montreal from 9 p.m. to midnight.
She was joined by The West Block’s chief political correspondent Tom Clark, news anchor Elysia Bryan-Baynes, former Liberal Party cabinet minister Yolande James, political analyst Bruce Hicks and political commentator Ethan Cox. Our coverage featured in-depth analysis, interviews with local newsmakers and experts, up-to-the-minute results and live reports from our team of veteran journalists at party campaign headquarters and key locations in Montreal and with liberal leader Philippe Couillard in St-Félicien.
On election night, the numbers are what’s important, and you can find up-to-the-minute 2014 Quebec election results on our interactive results page.
The Global News’ Decision Desk was headed by Concordia University political scientist Guy Lachapelle. His team interpreted the election results as they come in, in order to help understand what’s happening as the votes are counted. Based on poll results from each of Quebec’s 125 electoral districts, our team made projections throughout the night as to which party won each riding, and ultimately, who would form the next provincial government.
