A challenge from a popular former radio shock jock was not enough to prevent a landslide victory for Regis Labeaume that Sunday handed the popular mayor his first full term as the city's chief executive.

Give Me One Good Reason to Vote in the Upcoming Municipality Elections

No substantial opposition has already placed Régis Labeaume in the winner's circle as the "re-elected" mayor of Québec City. Now it seems the only reason to vote is to secure a new arena for a potential NHL team; since Mr. Labeaume has made it clear that the project will be shut down if he doesn't have a strong majority win.
