Blanchet puts Bloc in position to win more seats in Quebec
Polls show the sovereigntist party fighting for second-place in Québec behind the Liberals.
Bloc Quebecois candidate Helene Gaudreau, centre, and leader Yves-Francois Blanchet, right, speak to voters in the Laurentides-Labelle riding in Quebec on Aug. 31. Liberal MP David Graham narrowly defeated a Bloc candidate to win the riding in 2015, while two neighbouring ridings, Joliette and Rivière-du-Nord, both went to the Bloc.
