NDP Win Confirmed in Montmagny--L'Islet--Kamouraska--Rivière-du-Loup

One judicial recount is complete. In Montmagny--L'Islet--Kamouraska--Rivière-du-Loup, the NDP won by 9 votes, four more than the initially validated results. The preliminary results had the Conservative candidate as the winner by 110 votes on election night, but it was subsequently discovered that a ballot box's NDP votes were mistakenly given to the Greens.

This confirms that the NDP won 59 seats in Québec, and the Tories, 5. Despite coming fourth in the popular vote, the Grits have the second-most seats (7), and of course the Bloc only got 4 seats.

Go highly regionalized voting patterns in Quebec which give the fourth party the second most seats! Yay!

That's more than negated by the inefficient Liberal vote in Ontario...
