Anne Lagacé Dowson calls for investigation into EMSB election

EMSB chair candidate says voting in Ahuntsic/Montreal North ward was rigged

Anne Lagacé Dowson, who was defeated in her run for chair of the English Montreal School Board, is calling for a formal investigation in one ward and a recount in another after Sunday’s school board election.

Lagacé Dowson says the vote in Ward 7 (Ahuntsic/Montreal North) was rigged.

Sylvia Lo Bianco, the candidate seeking re-election in that ward under the banner of Team Angela Mancini, won by a margin of about 800 votes. Lo Bianco’s sister ran the polling station.

“The sister of the candidate gave the green light to all kinds of people who walked up and who showed ID and were able to vote — despite a clear directive from the director general of elections, which we respected,” said Lagacé Dowson.

Lagaçé Dowson has asked the province’s education ministry to launch a formal investigation.
