Four of the five McGill students who were fighting in court for their right to vote earlier this week will not be able to cast a ballot.
The five were students who came originally from outside the province, and were refused as they tried to register their names on the electoral list.
The one who was granted the right to vote, Brendan Edge, is the Green Party candidate for the Laval riding of Chomedey.
The four others did not meet the requirements the revision committees have set regarding the notion of being "domiciled" in Quebec. That not only involves being a resident of Quebec, but also intention to stay, according to Justice Robert Mongeon.
The students had all been represented by constitutional lawyer Julius Grey — he says he's satisfied with the ruling, but suggests he might continue to pursue the issue after the election.
