Quebec election a disappointment for separatists

Yesterday's election in Quebec was a disappointing one for the Parti Quebecois. Although they won the day, it was only with a slim minority. The question is, what kind of relationship should we expect between Pauline Marois and Prime Minister Stephen Harper?

And although he lost his seat, Jean Charest left the Liberal party is reasonably good shape. The party is the official opposition and won only four fewer seats than the PQ. And while we don't know yet what Charest plans to do, Canadians owe him a debt of gratitude for years of good relations between Quebec and the rest of the country.

Gordon Barthos is joined by Leslie Papp and Olivia Ward.
