Québec Solidaire’s Catherine Dorion celebrates her victory in Taschereau riding on election night. QS also won in Jean Lesage, with Sol Zanetti.

The Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) swept all but three of the 14 seats in the Quebec City region as François Legault’s fledgling party steamrolled to a majority government in the Oct. 1 election. The election also produced a two-seat breakthrough for the left-wing sovereigntist party Québec Solidaire (QS), a first in the capital city.
