In the eyes of student associations, a letter sent to Elections Quebec by the director general of the Liberal Party shows that the Liberals are scared of the youth vote.
Karl Blackburn, director general of the Parti Liberal du Québec, sent a letter on Tuesday to the director general of Elections Québec (DGEQ), stating concern about respect for the electoral law by student associations. ”Having recently announced that it was targeting a dozen ridings, CLASSE would have us believe today that its actions will not be taken within the context of an electoral campaign. Don’t be fooled, we are looking at nothing other than an announcement of potential violations to the law,” wrote Blackburn.

There’s no question about it, of course the Liberals routinely do the best negative campaigning in electoral periods. Of course the most recent could leave you perplexed. Did one of those advertizing big-wigs seated around the table say to himself: “Anything put in slow motion is ridiculous… just take Pauline Marois improvising and jamming on a casserole and… bingo! She will seem thick!”
Hmm. Bad call there, boys; It could be said, rather, that in addition to having to use technical means (worthy of an MERSRQ student in the basement with Mommy and Daddy’s Mac) to demonize the leader or to make her seem an idiot on screen, you mock all the citizens who have attempted to use a playful and peaceful method to say that you are rotten. And laughing at voters, well, that rarely works!
Above all, of those who have made the effort to join these famous lively marches that have become a symbol of peaceful protest for Mr. and Mrs. Everyone (that didn’t bother, until very recently, the Willow of finances, Raymond Bachand… Talk amongst yourselves caucus!) in the face of the ridiculous decisions of old Charest, clinging to power, and his henchmen.
