The race in the Montreal riding of Sainte-Marie-Saint-Jacques is close – probably too close to call without a recount.
With only four polls left to report, Quebec Solidaire’s Manon Massé is leading by just 29 votes. In second place is Liberal candidate Anna Klisko, and the incumbent PQ Sustainable Development Minister Daniel Breton is not too far back, in third place.
Just over 600 votes separate Breton from Massé.
Massé is the treasurer of Quebec Solidaire, and is a social justice activist. Klisko is a housing and real estate lawyer, and owns a preschool.
A PQ loss in this riding would be particularly surprising, as Sainte-Marie-Saint-Jacques has voted for that party since the riding was created in 1989.
