Q&A: What's next for the Parti Québécois after winning the Quebec election?

PQ leader Pauline Marois speaks to supporters as she makes a campaign stop in Gatineau, Que., on Friday. On the eve of a vote expected to give the PQ at least a minority government, markets have reacted little to the prospect of the party returning to power for the first time in nearly a decade.


Pauline Marois's Parti Québécois were returned to power Tuesday night, after winning a minority government in Quebec's provincial election. Jean Charest's Liberals fell to second place and the upstart Coalition Avenir Québec, led by Francois Legault, hold the balance of power.

What's next for the PQ and what does this mean for the sovereignty movement? Join our discussion at 9 a.m. ET with The Globe and Mail's Sophie Cousineau in Montreal and John Ibbitson in Ottawa.
