Voter Suppression and Fear Mongering Latest PQ Strategy

One of the first acts of Pauline Marois' new PQ government was to change the election law, allowing students to be registered and vote within their university or cegep.
The thinking being of course, that students who have a historically low turnout would be encouraged to vote in higher numbers and do so largely for the PQ, as the very young are apt to do.

But as Bobby Burns told us, so long ago; The best laid schemes of mice and men....

It seems that students at Montreal's McGill University and Concordia  are availing themselves of the privilege and that has incited the PQ  and their semi-official party newspaper, the Journal de Montreal to launch a virulent attack on Anglo students, meant more to stir up resentment among francophone voters than address any illegality.

The newspaper has launched a virulent smear campaign, intimating that those who are registering to vote are doing so illegally, all without a shred of evidence.

The story was sparked by a returning officer who resigned rather than register these 'foreigners' based on what he claimed was the inability of officials to verify the students' bone fides.

The urban myth of thousands and thousands of such 'Anglo illegals' who voted in the 1995 referendum is a legend that separatists love to invoke, in their belief that the 1995 referendum was stolen by dirty tricks and English money.
The Journal de Montreal has written no less than five articles about these anglo student voters, stoking a controversy that has reached the highest levels of the PQ where the wedge issue is judged useful, whether true or not.

Worst of all, The JdeMtl is proposing the wild and inaccurate assertion that even if the students fulfill all the criteria, they must intend on living in Quebec long-term to be eligible to vote.

It would interesting to know whether the reporter Caroline Pailliez made up this particular condition or was told the same by some election officer, which actually would be more dangerous.

I've taken a screen cap of the statement made by the reporter that  a voter must "have the intention to reside in Quebec long-term"


The same assertion is repeated in another Journal de Montreal story HERE

The Huffington Post picked up the story and repeated the same nonsense;
"Quebec's chief electoral office is trying to clarify the rules for voter eligibility after a number of English-speaking university students from elsewhere in Canada complained they were unable to register for the April 7 provincial election.
Denis Dion, a spokesman for the electoral office, said there are certain cases that are more difficult to assess and the key point is to determine whether a person is committed to living in Quebec."  Link

But the law is exceeding clear. This from the website of the Director General of Elections


 Here is the clause denoting who can vote directly from the Quebec Elections Act

CHAPTER I
QUALIFIED ELECTORS

1. Every person who

(1) has attained 18 years of age
(2) is a Canadian citizen,
(3) has been domiciled in Québec for six months,
(4) is not under curatorship, and
(5) is not deprived of election rights pursuant to this Act, the Referendum Act (chapter C-64.1), the Act respecting elections and referendums in municipalities (chapter E-2.2) or the Act respecting school elections (chapter E-2.3),

The domicile of a person is the domicile established under the Civil Code.
So the question of what is a person's domicile, is interpreted by the Quebec Civil Code

CHAPTER II
DOMICILE AND RESIDENCE


75. The domicile of a person, for the exercise of his civil rights, is at the place of his principal establishment.


76. Change of domicile is effected by actual residence in another place coupled with the intention of the person to make it the seat of his principal establishment.
The proof of such intention results from the declarations of the person and from the circumstances of the case.
Nowhere does it say that the person must commit to living in this domicile in the future or for any determined length of time, just that it actually represents his or her principle residence.
 
Determining whether a voter's domicile is principle is reasonable when voters have more than one home.
This is the case with voters who have country chalets, but must vote in the riding of their city home because it is their principle residence.
"To establish “domicile,” The chief electoral officer, Jacques Drouin explained that a potential voter must not only provide proof that they have resided here for at least six months, but may also be asked to prove that Quebec is the place they consider to be their “principal establishment.” That could mean handing over evidence of bank accounts in a Quebec banking institution, a Quebec health insurance card, a Quebec driver’s licence, or an income tax return filed in Quebec, Drouin said.  " Link
But for students who came from other provinces, who live in Quebec full-time and have a Quebec residence as their principle address, the issue of whether they intend to live here in the future is nobody's business, certainly not a criterion for eligibility.

At any rate, the whole story is journalistic trash and utterly dishonest, a push piece masquerading as news from its opening line.
"Ontario students are trying to vote en mass in the next general  election  in order to avoid a referendum on sovereignty".
(Des étudiants ontariens essaient de voter en masse pour les prochaines élections générales au Québec afin d’éviter un référendum sur la souveraineté.)

As for the impact of these potential voters, let's look a little closer at the five ridings that are supposedly affected as mentioned in another Journal de Montreal article.

Daniel Breton, the PQ incumbent of  Sainte-Marie–Saint-Jacques told a journalist that he is worried about the possible voter fraud in his riding.
But here are the facts.
Mr Breton won his riding over the Quebec Solidaire candidate with the Liberals trailing badly in third.



Even more laughable is including the riding of Westmount-Saint-Louis as a possible target of voter fraud.
The Anglo bastion is one of the safest ridings in Quebec with Jacques Chagnon of the Liberals getting over 15,000 votes compared to the PQ's 1,700.
The PQ is traditionally represented by a 'poteau' as sacrificial candidates are known in Quebec. This election's version is particularly interesting, a member of the Société Saint-Jean-Baptiste, probably the only idiot who showed up for the job. I wouldn't go door-to-door, if I was him!

As for Saint-Henri-Saint-Anne, a look at the map indicates that there can't be more than a handful of anglo students residing there, it's too far from the schools.

Saint-François in the Eastern Townships is indeed a closely fought riding but has a minuscule Anglo student population, with Bishops University enrolment of 2,200, just about the only place one would find out-of-province students. The only other Anglo school of significance is Champlain College with it's paltry enrolment of 1,200 students, almost all of whom are locals, anyway.
As for the riding of Sherbrooke, I can't even imagine more than a handful of English out-of town students attending the local French-only universities.

Clearly the smear campaign launched by the Journal de Montreal is meant to strike an emotional response hoping to get more francophones to vote, firing them up with tales of Anglo hordes illegally voting and thus stealing the election, as popular an urban myth as exists in Quebec.

Look for the biased Journal de Montreal to offer us more of these wonderful stories in the run up to the election campaign and the more desperate the PQ gets, the wilder the stories, although I am hard-pressed to imagine a more blatant and biased story than this piece of garbage, masquerading as journalism.

Late Breaking.....

After much pressure the Directeur général des élections du Québec (DGE) has verified and concluded that the reported irregularities do not exist.

In an interview with French CBC;
"This is not what the numbers show," says Jacques Drouin in an interview with Radio-Canada. Only the riding of Saint-Henri-Sainte-Anne in Montreal, received a little more applications in 2012, he said, but nothing to worry about.  Link
This in response to the outgoing Justice Minister's demand that he be given daily reports on the situation, a demand flatly rejected by the DG.

It seems Bertrand St-Arnaud, the outgoing justice minister has finally woken up and come out of his self-imposed vow of silence, caused no doubt by his fear of being questioned on the legality of the Charter of Rights, something he knows, he cannot defend.

How will the media react to the fact that this whole story was fabricated?
...wait and see.

    My only question is whether or not we can take PKP to task over this (on a legal level) for clearly demonstrating that he's guilty of influence peddling.

    Today, we got a very clear look at where the separatist mindset is rooted (as if we didn't know enough already). What really shook me is that just as with bills 60 and 14, separatists love giving themselves permission to be xenophobic and racist to justify their hatred of "les autres".

    Truly disturbing.

    1. The PQ would surely love it if they could somehow find a way to circumvent democracy and tell voters that only people who were born in Quebec will be allowed to vote. And if they do get elected, they will change the law so that henceforth, one will have to sing a Marie-Mai song in order to have the right to vote.

    2. From the Rationalist:

      Hold on. Wasn't there a poll recently published that indicated that almost half of English Quebecers and alophones were thinking of leaving Quebec if Pauline won a majority? On that basis, the PQ should be challenging the registration of all the non pure laines. How can these "voters" prove beyond any doubt (the new standard according to the CJAD recording) their intention that Quebec is their domicile? After all, half of them are thinking of leaving!

    5. Studen'ts right, the study looked at intentions when there was only a PQ minority and the reasons were given for wanting to leave were "Most people across all groups named taxes, jobs, political uncertainty and the economy as the most significant reasons they had contemplated a departure", in other words they'd be much stronger if there was a PQ majority as that would all but insure higher taxes, less jobs, more political uncertainty and a weaker economy.

    1. On Wednesday, the Supreme Court will hear the case of an Ottawa man who complained he wasn't able to order a 7-Up in French on an Air Canada flight. Michel Thibodeau won his original case against the airline, arguing his right to be served in French was violated on flights he and his wife made between January and May 2009. The Federal Court ruled that Air Canada failed in the Official Languages Act obligations it has as a former Crown corporation. So, the Court ordered the airline to pay Thibodeau and his wife, Lynda, $12,000 in damages and cover their court costs.

      However, the Federal Court of Appeal later overturned that decision and dropped the damages because the airline had made "significant efforts" to serve the Thibodeaus in French. Official Languages Commissioner Graham Fraser launched an appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada on behalf of the Thibodeaus. Thibodeau has a history of suing over language issues, winning a 2002 case against Air Canada over lack of service in French. He has also complained about bilingualism in the City of Ottawa, offended that public transit bus drivers were only calling out street names in English and greeting passengers with "good morning," not "bonjour." Ottawa's buses now have a bilingual automated stop announcement system that calls out, for example, both "Bank Street" and "Rue Bank."


      WHAT?!? Multilingual Montreal can’t even have simple bilingual services like those offered in Ottawa… and if you complain about it, you’re farcically accused of “Quebec-bashing” instead of having the Supreme Court of Canada back you up, like francophones do.

      Absurd. Montreal is a distinct society. Montreal, city-state!

    2. The real slap in the face in all this is how a fuckface like Graham Fraser files a suit on BEHALF of the even bigger fuckface Thibodeaus.

    3. Those damn Supreme Court Judges (never mind that quebec has to have at least three on the Supreme Court which annoys the hell out of me because the separatists are sneaky traitors) better not find in favour of those idiot trouble making Thibodeau's, who are bilingual traitors working for the federal government. I will blow my stack if they get away with costing the country even more money with their arrogance on insisting on being served a pop on an aircraft in English. If they were unilingual Francophones that resided in quebec, had flown out of quebec to some other Canadian destination, I might, just might, have a little bit of sympathy for them but not given their circumstances. I hope their neighbours make them feel so unwelcome in Ontario that they feel they have to leave to live in quebec and that their co-workers also shun them. They don't deserve to be a part of our Canadian landscape. It's people like that that bring shame on this whole province.

      That's like saying Jews were racist against the Germans.

      When you are defending yourself against "a people" that have spent decades even to destroy and suppres all People Not Like Them that's not racism.

      When Quebec stops offering 80% wines from France at the SAQ and French Students pay regular international student fee's etc then we can talk about how Quebec isn;t really trying to be (is?) an extension of France.

      That's pulled right from "Quebec bashing". Busy figuring out ways to prevent anglophones from registering in the election yet anglophones but that's just "normal quebec" business.

  13. From the Rationalist:

    The scandal is not that students domiciled in Quebec are trying to register to vote. The SCANDAL is that they, being English speaking, are being arbitrarily denied that right. Time for some journalists to play the CJAD recording to the DGE and demand an explanation. He's indicated the penalties for fraudulently registering to vote. From $5,000 to $20,000. What are the penalties for FRAUDULENTLY DENYING THE RIGHT TO VOTE? The "journalists" at The Gazette and other English language media should get off their fat asses and make this an issue.

  14. “As for Saint-Henri-Saint-Anne, a look at the map indicates that there can't be more than a handful of anglo students residing there, it's too far from the schools.”

    Well, actually, Saint-Henri-Sainte-Anne (a safe Liberal riding) includes the area around the Lionel-Groulx metro station (such as Little Burgundy and Atwater Market) as well as Griffintown and Point St. Charles. Thus, for many people, it is only a 10-minute walk to Concordia. In fact, McGill University maintains a student residence (Solin Hall) in a converted industrial building directly behind the Lionel-Groulx metro station (which is a very convenient location since both the Green and Orange Lines stop there, along with many buses, including the 747 to the airport).

    So in fact, one can find a healthy level of bilingualism as well as a good number of anglo students in the area, who frequent the Burgundy Lion pub and Corona Theatre (though maybe not Joe Beef, one of Montreal’s top restaurants), among the many other options in the up-and-coming neighbourhood.

    Unfortunately, the puppy dog falls sleep, like babies do and Stupella the witch takes over spreading hatred and creating confusion amongst the six billion and 1 Dalmatians.
    The original stupids know they are in trouble when the new stupids start complaining that the puppy dog bit them.
    The stupidity leaders panic and call an election which they hope to win by thinking everyone is more stupid than them.
    THE MORAL is that, if you think stupidity can win the day, you are stupid enough to need ESSENTIAL STUPIDITY. Ed.

    Funding for a new elevator in the church in St. Narcisse $100,000

    Premier, I thought Quebec was neutral in religious affairs?

    The PQ really just cannot buy a break these days. Hot off the heels of voter-gate (or what today's separatists will be describing to their (grand) children as "l'autre vote voler"), mega-racist Louise Ravery has now been linked to former KKK-leader David Duke via her mentor:

    1. I'm shocked! The majority of the separatist politicians are the scum of the earth and one has to wonder just where they get a lot of their ideas (MK perhaps) and, of course, the KKK. When are the followers of these idiots going to smarten up? Better be sooner than later as they keep voting themselves into oblivion. Authentic history books on Germany pre World War II should be sent to everyone that thinks of voting for these racist bigots - perhaps they could then get the link in their little minds!

    2. You meant to say Louise Mailloux, not Lise Ravary.

      Lise Ravary is a strong francophone federalist who blogs for the Journal de Montréal and is a very nice lady.

      Louise Mailloux is a CEGEP philosophy teacher, PQ candidate and anti-religion militant, who is supported by a former MNA who represented her riding and who has links to the KKK. Despite this, Mailloux’ candidacy has still not only *not* been denounced by Pauline Marois but actually been supported by her. Mailloux doesn’t sound like a nice lady at all.

  25. In case anyone wants a summary of this weekend's shameful events. Surely, thoughtful members of the PQ must be disgusted.

  27. I was told that this article is interesting. Written by a francophone columnist, I think it can be deemed to be free from francophobia. As my French is not that good, can I ask help from student, Press 9 / S.R, Y.L, Mohammed or Sebastien to tell me what the writer is writing about?

  28. From Ann,
    It amazes me with today's latest poll that amongst francophones the PQ is still favoured. Given that they couldn't get it through their thick skulls that Duplessis was bad for them, the next generation is not any smarter and can't figure out how fascist the PQ has become. They never learn. The intelligent ones in the anglo, allo and franco communities who see the sheer danger of the PQ will end up going down because of the decisions of the dumbheads. Past Liberal corruption is nothing compared to what is in store for Quebecers under the PQ regime and the dumbheads who worship Marois and her gang are unbelievably naïve.

    This is truly unbelievable - we must be living in the least democratic society in North America - these people are the worst type of rednecks - the south has nothing on them..................more and more people are being denied the right to vote.
