The man who sounded the alarm about Anglophones and Allophones voters says the threat of fraud is still real.
Mathieu Vandal wrote in an open letter in Le Devoir morning that says a lease can be bought at a convenience store for $1.99 and that citizenship certificates can be easily reproduced.
At the same time he says its unacceptable that an honest citizen living in Quebec for the past six months, though sometimes Anglophone and born in another province, would not be able to register because they don't have a Quebec driver's licence or Medicare card.
He says the rules on how to handle the cases of residency are unclear. "The directives are too complex and vague to be, in my opinion, applied correctly by individual appointed by political parties (often loyal volunteers, sometimes without jobs or diploma," he says.
"With all the potential errors, voluntary or not, how can we prevent a losing political party from refusing the recognize the results on April 7th?" he says.
He also says we must avoid the consequences of a close race and says we should think about the 1995 referendum.
