Notes[edit]

  1. ^ André Forbes was nominated as a Liberal, but lost party support just before the nomination deadline. Instead of resigning, he continued to run as an Independent. He appears on the ballot as a Liberal.[3][4]
  2. ^ Conservative vote is compared to the total of the Canadian Alliance vote and Progressive Conservative vote in 2000 election.
  3. ^ No BQ candidate in 1988 for comparison.
