Duplessis is a two-way fight between the Liberals and Parti Quebecois but the presence of new voters and more than supporters of the Union Kationale, now called the Unite-Quebec, has added some extra unknowns. The other byelection is in Ga- tineau, but the riding is consid- ered a safe Liberal seal. Duplessis, on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River, has a more than 26.000 voters and a three background of support for Que- I bee independence.

Coiteux by votes. The seat became vacant when Mr. Coiteux died in July.
