CORNER BROOK Many youth, especially students, feel they were unjustly scrutinized and/or turned away from voting in the municipal election in Corner Brook Tuesday.
Nick Mercer, vice president external of the Grenfell Campus Student Union, said students have been sharing stories of how they feel they were treated unfairly and prejudiciously at polling stations. Some have submitted formal complaints through the union.
“We are just starting to get an idea of the extent of this ourselves,” Mercer said. “But, we do have reason for concern.”
He said the student union wants to work with the city to address the issues and ensure they do not continue in future elections.
More details and additional views will be available in Thursday's newspaper.
