Elections Quebec 2022 | The solidarity candidate in Camille-Laurin removed a pamphlet from her PQ opponent from a mailbox.

Québec solidaire candidate Marie-Eve Rancourt was unwittingly filmed removing a Parti Québécois flyer from the mailbox of a voter in the Camille-Laurin riding.

On a video, the long-time QS activist climbs a few steps of an apartment building in the borough of Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, places a QS pamphlet, then grabs that of her PQ opponent, Paul St-Pierre Plamondon. .

Resident Guy Misson denounced a « pure and simple theft ». « What’s in my mailbox, whether it’s a leaflet, a statement or a check, belongs to me! » he argued. “Is that democracy at Québec solidaire? “, he asked, while hoping that the spokesperson for QS, Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois “does not let this pass”.

Marie-Eve Rancourt, who aims to « build[uire] a feminist, democratic, environmentalist and left-wing society ” quickly offered, after the broadcast of the video, his apologies to the PQ leader Paul St-Pierre Plamondon, who is seeking the votes in Camille-Laurin. “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”, writes the lawyer and trade unionist in a message published on social networks Monday.

Marie-Eve Rancourt and Paul St-Pierre Plamondon are both expected at a debate between the candidates in Camille-Laurin this evening.

Further details will follow.
