Liberals crush Marois and Quebec separatists in majority win

PQ Leader Pauline Marois quit during her concession speech after she lost her Quebec City riding.

“You will understand that under the circumstances I have to leave my post,” Marois told supporters in Montreal, to a chorus of groans.

Quebec’s first female premier was in power for just 18 months and that ended with her party’s worst election-night showing, in terms of seats, in 25 years.
