a Quebec Liberal Party addressed to the High Court on Tuesday to try to overturn the Chief Electoral Officer’s decision to reject Harley Lounsbury’s candidacy in the Matane-Matapédia riding.
The problem: one of Mr. Lounsbury’s agents, responsible for collecting signatures from citizens in support of his candidacy, forgot to put his initials on his affidavit.
An administrative trifle, PLQ claims. A question of fairness and balance, says DGEQ. Judge Clément Samson will have to rule on the issue and decide whether Mr Lounsbury’s name will appear on the ballot or whether the Liberal Party will not field a full team of candidates for the first time in its 155-year history.

try a littleend the election campaign
without harming the people of Quebec.
In a media scrum in Montreal at the end of the afternoon, Nadeau-Dubois accused the outgoing premier of a lack of sensitivity on aboriginal issues.
I think he misunderstands the depth of the wounds that aboriginals in Quebec have experienced and continue to experience. He spontaneously said at the leaders’ debate that it was decided. It’s not just a disconnect, it’s a lack of compassion.
The aboriginal issue is a sensitive issue in Quebeche added.
You can’t say anything anytime. I consider it normal to hurt the family, the community of the survivors when you are the Premier of Quebec.
