The situation was denounced on social networks by the person residing at the address where the event occurred.

“Unbelievable and unacceptable!!! Here are 2 videos [prises] at home, the first from a volunteer from the Parti Québécois leaving a leaflet in my mailbox and the second from the candidate of Québec solidaire in Camille-Laurin, Marie-Ève ​​Rancourt. The latter deposits her leaflet there and in return steals the other that was already there, ”wrote the citizen on his Facebook page.

In a short message published an hour after the publication of the video, Ms. Rancourt, who is a lawyer, apologized to the leader of the Parti Québécois, who is also seeking the votes in Camille-Laurin.

“I would like to personally apologize to Paul St-Pierre Plamondon for the video that appeared on Facebook. This should never have happened. All candidates have their place in this race and I am committed to finishing this electoral sprint with respect and the rules of the art,” she noted.

On the side of the Chief Electoral Officer of Quebec, it is indicated that this type of behavior is not framed by the Election Act. “Theft or mischief to property are offenses governed by the Criminal Code. These situations must therefore be reported to the police,” said Gabriel Sauvé-Lesiège, spokesperson for Élections Québec.
