NDP gains in Quebec

It is clear now the NDP will win a huge number of seats in Quebec on Monday, likely more than 50.  In the process the orange wave will wash over some very big names. Here are a few examples of well-known MPs certain to lose:
  • BQ Leader Gilles Duceppe in Montreal's Laurier St. Marie
  • Conservative Foreign Affairs Minister Lawrence Cannon in Pontiac
  • Liberal and former Canadian astronaut Marc Garneau in Westmount-Ville-Marie
