And the winner is...

Gérald Tremblay, with about 37% of the vote. Louise Harel finishes a close second with about 33%. Richard Bergeron, with about 26%, helped split the opposition vote with Harel. So, no change in Montreal.

Régis Labeaume in Quebec City was elected with about 80% of the vote. No surprise there.

Gilles Vaillancourt will remain as mayor of Laval, with about 61% of the vote.

Caroline St-Hillare, former Bloc MP, will be mayor of Longueuil with about 53%.

In Gatineau, I was wrong to say Gravel was in the race. He wasn't. But Marc Bureau will continue to be mayor, with about 44% of the vote.

Finally, in Saguenay Jean Tremblay won with 78%.

The race for the mayorship of Sherbrooke is very, very close. At the moment of writing, Bernard Sévigny is ahead of Hélène Gravel by 0.1 points!
