Since the start of the election campaign, François Legault’s party has contacted Quebec’s Chief Electoral Officer (DGEQ) at least twice, as Quebec Solidaire encourages young people to change their address to vote on their university campus. or university.

On Sunday, the Solidarity candidate in Rimouski, Carol-Ann Kack, released an ephemera video calling on people aged 18 to 34 to do the same. QS also had to stop distributing flyers on campus asking students to change their address, including in the Sherbrooke area.

In an interview with our parliamentary office, CAQ CEO Brigitte Legault expressed concerns about what her party says could be a “fraudulent electoral maneuver”. Until now, the DGEQ reminded that “students do not necessarily acquire their residence in the district of their educational institution.”

“What I see is the CAQ staff working very, very hard to put a word in the colossus of Québec Solidaire to ensure that young people don’t vote where they have their home,” responded Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois.

He does not see a problem when students change their address for the constituency where they live and study.

“The law is clear: it allows you to change your address to make sure they vote in the correct constituency, the constituency where they live. They have that option. It’s legal, the DGEQ has never violated the law,” the spokesperson assured in solidarity.

“The decision to accept or not to accept a change of address is taken by the DGEQ authorities,” he reminded. It is neither CAQ nor Québec solidaire, I believe that the people of DGEQ will make the right decisions.

Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois took the opportunity to ridicule CAQ activists who began distributing leaflets imitating Quebec Solidaire leaflets to demonize what François Legault calls “orange taxes”.

“I, the CAQ activists who go around neighborhoods at night and put flyers on people’s windshields, find it quite funny. I don’t think it’s the kind of politics that will appeal to Quebecers, I don’t think it’s going to change a lot of people’s minds.

While the CAQ leader defends the use of this type of advertising by arguing that his party needs to inform voters of the threat posed by QS, this type of leaflet does not explain “why we should trust CAQ on the environment, why it is the best way to look after the planet “, remarked Mr. Nadeau-Dubois.
