Marie-Eve Rancourt withdraws her candidacy in Camille-Laurin
Marie-Eve Rancourt, candidate for Québec solidaire (QS) caught stealing a Parti Québécois (PQ) leaflet from a letterbox to put hers in, withdrew from the race in Camille-Laurin.
“We took the time, Manon, the campaign team and I to find out the facts, to consult our team, explained the spokesperson for Québec solidaire Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, during a press conference in Sainte -Henri-Sainte-Anne. We then had a frank discussion with Marie-Ève Rancourt, who told us that she was withdrawing her candidacy.
The ex-candidate “would not have taken this decision lightly”, but “did not want to become a distraction” within the party. According to Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, no complaint has been filed with the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM) for theft. Indeed, mail theft is a crime under the Criminal Code, and may even be punishable by imprisonment.
The message is clear: these are not actions acceptable to Québec solidaire. Moreover, Marie-Eve quickly apologized for this serious error in judgment. She herself knew that this was unacceptable.
