After the counting of the votes in 70 of the 206 control offices, Ms. Michaud obtained nearly 57% of the votes cast.
Kristina Michaud (BQ), who was the deputy for the constituency when the 43e legislature, faced five other candidates, including the Liberal Louis-Éric Savoie, who was trying to take over the riding that the Bloc had stolen from his party in 2019.
The candidate of the Conservative Party, Germain Dumas, that of the People’s Party of Canada, Éric Barnabé, and the candidate of the NPD, Christel Marchand, were also trying to win the constituency.
In recent weeks, the upgrading of infrastructure, the scarcity of manpower, the means to fight against the erosion of the banks and the economic recovery were the main themes proposed by the candidates in the constituency.
In the 2019 general election, Kristina Michaud was ahead of the liberal Rémi Massé by collecting 51.4% of the vote, an advance of 5,812 votes. Conservative Natasha Tremblay and New Democrat Rémi-Jocelyn Côté followed with 7.7% and 4% of support, respectively.
