In the last few weeks, Prime Minister Pauline Marois has been worried about Anglophone students living outside the province to steal the elections. Her worries made a big a scandal and involved the Electoral Office who had ensured Marois and the other parties that the law is working and that there is nothing to worry about.
It was too little too late to stop people from panicking. The Anglophone students who met the prerequisites to vote were refused their right to vote on April 7. The Liberal Party of Quebec took advantage of Marois’ worries and the Coalition Avenir Quebec found this situation ridiculous and said that it is old drama between old parties who really want to win the elections.
The Parti Quebecois and Marois really mishandled the situation and made a big deal out of something that was never really an issue. Here is a little quick summary of what happened in a span of 2-3 days.
