QCGN’s president, Geoffrey Chambers, comments the first-ever English-language provincial electoral debate.
With the fear of a referendum on Quebec’s independence off the table, the first-ever televised English-language debate among political leaders created interesting discussions on other policies that concern voters.
Concordia University students watching Monday’s debate said that gave anglophones more choices — although they noted that many students at Montreal’s English universities are francophones.
“I think the fact that there’s an English debate this year shows a lot about wanting to bring anglophones into the group of more democratically active people,” said one student.
The president of the Quebec Community Groups Network said the fact that the leaders debated in English is a great sign for the anglophone community.
