François Legault’s Coalition Avenir Québec is on track to capture at least four of six Laval seats in Monday’s provincial election and complete a stunning reversal from 2018 as the party marches toward a majority government.

As of 8:52 p.m., CAQ candidates were leading in Fabre, Laval-des-Rapides, Mille-Îles and Sainte-Rose, results compiled by Élections Québec showed.

Chomedey and Vimont bucked the trend, with preliminary results showing Liberal candidates narrowly edging out their CAQ opponents in both ridings.

A CAQ majority in Laval would mark a drastic change from four years ago, when the Liberals captured five seats on the island. Christopher Skeete, in Sainte-Rose, was the only CAQ candidate to win a seat locally in 2018.
