Coalition party wins majority in Quebec

MONTREAL—Quebecers charted a new course for their province yesterday by giving the seven-year-old Coalition Avenir Quebec a majority mandate in an election result that could create waves beyond its borders.

Quebec, Canada's second most-populous province, has joined the even bigger province of Ontario in voting for change following about 15 years of Liberal governments.

Bombers back at .500

EDMONTON—The Winnipeg Blue Bombers made a case for the defence and dramatically improved their playoff prospects in the process.

The Bombers (7-7) forced seven turnovers in a convincing 30-3 win over the Edmonton Eskimos (7-7) on Saturday night.

“It felt good but it is a team effort,” said Winnipeg defensive back Kevin Fogg, who was responsible for two turnovers.
