Canada's Quebec upsets liberals as CAQ set to win majority

The center-right Coalition Avenir Quebec is on track to win power for the first time in Canada's Quebec province on Monday, dealing a blow to the Liberal incumbents and allowing the party to make good on its promises to curb immigration.
The business-friendly CAQ is expected to win a majority of seats in Canada's second most populous province, according to early results from Elections Quebec and network projections.
"My team and I are very eager to get to work for you," Legault said Monday night on Twitter.The CAQ win would follow a shift to the right in Ontario, where Premier Doug Ford’s Progressive Conservative government swept to power in June, ending 15 years of Liberal rule in Canada’s most populous province.
