Less nationalist, more conservative = ADQ success

The provincial elections in Quebec has thrown up interesting results. The Liberals have clung on as a minority government but the real news story is the Action Démocratique du Québec (ADQ) outstripping the Parti Québécois (PQ) and becoming the official opposition. The ADQ is less virulently nationalist than PQ, prefering more autonomy rather than sovereignty. Furthermore it is fiscally conservative while the Labour backed PQ are centre-left. This the worst result for PQ since 1970 and the success of the Conservatives in the 2006 federal elections in Quebec suggest it is not an odd result.
