With federal election signs yet to be removed, new ones began appearing on poles and lawns as the provincial byelection in Jean-Talon riding got underway.

Premier François Legault called the election for Dec. 2 to replace Liberal MNA Sébastien Proulx, the former education minister, who announced in the summer he was quitting politics.
