Intense tweets calling out Marois and the PQ.
Montreal's Reaction On Twitter To Pauline Marois's Crushing Defeat

After a brief 18 month stint as premiere of Quebec, Pauline Marois has ended her career as leader of the Parti Québécois following yesterday's election results.

The Liberals won, the PQ lost (quite badly) and the world keeps on turning.

Hopefully the change in leadership will bring about some positive changes for the province, but before any of that, and before Mme Marois steps out of the limelight, Montrealers had some choice words to say to the previous premiere of Quebec.

A bit of a stretch, but I think Mother Nature has some political views. She obviously votes Green Party.

If a clown and a useless guy are our only options, we're still in trouble...

Quebec's Love Affair With Legault Is Outlasting COVID-19 Curfews, Taxes & More

Legault's approval rating currently sits at 55%, the survey says. That's a big drop from his peak of 77% in May 2020 — and it's his lowest rating since his election in October 2018. But Legault's approval rating is nonetheless second-highest in Canada, behind only Nova Scotia Premier Tim Houston, who has 57% approval.
