QUEBEC - It's the final day of campaigning in Quebec as voters prepare to cast their ballots Tuesday.

Premier Jean Charest has spent the final weekend on the hustings repeatedly warning of economic turmoil if voters elect the sovereigntist Parti Quebecois.

Charest took a political slapshot on Sunday while campaigning in the province's capital region.

He warned a PQ government could jeopardize the chances of NHL hockey returning to Quebec City.

Charest suggested the league would be less likely to favour putting a team in Quebec City because of the economic instability a PQ government would bring.

Recent polls have given the PQ the nod in they suggest is a tight three-way race with Charest's Liberal party and the upstart Coalition for Quebec's Future.

The fledgling party's leader Francois Legault has also spent the weekend talking about economic uncertainty under a PQ government determined to hold a sovereignty referendum.

PQ leader Pauline Marois has spent her last weekend of the campaign pleading for voters to give her a majority mandate.
