Good evening, and welcome to Global’s live coverage of the French-language leaders’ debate. Our team of political reporters will be tweeting throughout the event, which is being held at Radio-Canada’s studios in Montreal. You can also follow along with our live video-stream, above.
The debate will be divided into five major sections, including a section on the economy, a section on the environment and a section on “Canada in the world.”
The moderator tonight is veteran Radio-Canada anchor Anne-Marie Dussault. She will not be asking questions, only keeping everyone in line and on track. The questions will be posed by Patrice Roy, a Radio-Canada anchor, and Yves Boisvert, a journalist from La Presse.
