Jean Charest takes the stage in Sherbrooke...
Charest gets a big cheer when he reminds his supporters that the Liberal opposition has defied the pollsters.
"Don't worry," Pauline Marois tells anglophone Quebecers in English, "we share the same history and i want us to share our common future."
She continues in French, "This history is a beautiful history that we also share with the First Nations of Quebec."
Marois to the ROC - "As a nation we wish to take our own decisions over the issues that concern us. We want a country - and we will have it! I invite you to welcome these aspirations of ours and to do so with openness."
