An online petition calling for Quebec Premier Jean Charest's resignation has amassed more than 200,000 signatures.
The petition, tabled by an opposition member and posted on the legislature's website, has been up since last Monday.
It calls for Mr. Charest to step down for several reasons, including allegations of government collusion with the construction industry, daycares and in the nomination of judges.
Steve Brosseau, the private resident who penned the petition, has credited the massive interest to the population's discontent over how the Liberal government has been operating in recent months.
The original objective was to reach 100,000 signatures, and the petition hit that marker within 36 hours of being posted.
It will remain online until mid-February.Report Typo/Error
