Quebec election: Liberals say time to review candidates’ safety after violent incidents

Quebec Liberal Party Leader Dominique Anglade says it’s time to review the safety measures around political candidates.

Her comments come after two recent violent incidents involving Liberal members and to the recent threats made against Conservative party volunteers.

On Tuesday night, the Montreal riding office of Liberal Enrico Ciccone was vandalized and robbed, and last week a man called the police to tell them he murdered Montreal Liberal candidate Marwah Rizqy and to pick up her body.

Conservative Party Leader Eric Duhaime says two party volunteers in separate incidents were recently threatened after they caught people vandalizing election posters.

Anglade says she wants to be reassured that her party can campaign across the province without being subject to violence.
