More of the same from Quebec with Marois' victory: Vancouverites 0
Vancouverites are generally behind Quebec's new premier, Pauline Marois, but they don't expect much will change under her new government.
On Tuesday night, Marois and her Parti Quebecois were elected to power with 54 seats, making the 63-year-old social worker/civil servant the province's first female premier.
Quebec Liberal leader Jean Charest, who was defeated in his Sherbrooke riding as his party came in second with 50 seats - announced his resignation Wednesday afternoon.
B.C. is currently led by its second female premier, Christy Clark, who follows in the footsteps of Rita Johnston who briefly served as leader in 1991.
In general, Vancouverites weren't following the Quebec elections closely, but of those who were they were pleased to see a woman lead the Francophone province.
Marois became only the country's fifth female provincial premier.
24 hours checked the political temperature in Vancouver, asking locals what they thought of Tuesday night's elections.
What do you think of the election's outcome and do you have advice for Marois and her separatist party?
George Pattinson: "I don't think we have too much to worry about right now in these economic times because a minority government really isn't going to try and rattle the cage too much."
Laara Dance: "It's fantastic. Good for her. Good on you Pauline, keep it up."
Erica George: "It's cool that we have a woman leading the party."
Charlotte Cooper: "Well, you know what, let her step up to the plate. Let her be honest. What she promises is what she better deliver."
