From Yahoo News/Canadian Press:
MONTREAL - Parti Quebecois Leader Pauline Marois has undergone successful surgery to remove her appendix.
Marois, 59, checked into a hospital Sunday morning complaining of stomach pains and nausea. Doctors initially diagnosed her with food poisoning before determining the cause of her illness was appendicitis.
