The four leading federal party leaders in Canada
conducted a French debate on Wednesday
to try to win support from Quebec voters who debated on issues
such as the environment, euthanasia and abortion.
The French debate was held at TVA in Quebec
The party leaders were
the Liberal Party’s Justin Trudeau
the Conservative Party’s Andrew Scheer
the New Democratic Party’s Jagmeet Singh
and the Quebec political group Yves-Francois Blanchet
This is also the first time that Trudeau has participated
in the party’s leadership debate in this federal election
and the Green Party’s Elizabeth May
May and the People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier
were not invited to participate
because the Greens and People’s Party of Canada
has no seats in Congress in Quebec
At the beginning of the debate
Trudeau, Devotion and Blanchett asked Scheer
to clearly state his position on the issue of abortion
其中特鲁多问道 作为党领 作为父亲
Among them, Trudeau asked, as a party leader, and as a father
do you think that women have the right to choose abortion
Scheer said that if the Conservative Party wins in the general election
it will not reopen the debate on abortion
However, Scheer did not talk about his personal views.
When the topic turned to environmental issues
Scheer was again attacked by three other parties
On the same day, Scheer was in Vancouver
did not participate in the climate parade of 500,000 people in Montreal
But Scheer criticized Trudeau’s promise hypocrisy against climate change
pointing out that Trudeau used
two planes to campaign in this election.
Throughout the debate, Blanchet positioned himself
as the true defender of Quebec’s rights and asked
the other three party leaders to show their positions on other issues
including the perception of euthanasia with the help of doctors.
At the end of the debate
Scheer mentioned the practice of the SNC-Lavalin incident in Quebec
referring to the fact that Trudeau was lying in the face of the facts
Trudeau responded that
he defended the work of SNC-Lavalin.
In this debate, Singh was rarely targeted by other parties
Polls show that the New Democracy Party
is “preoccupied” at the National Assembly in Quebec.
