  • François Legault, Dominique Anglade, Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, Paul St-Pierre Plamondon and Éric Duhaime debated on the set set up in the atrium of the new Maison de Radio-Canada.

  • The five major themes: environment; cost of living and economy; health; education and services to citizens; French, immigration and identity.

  • Here is a summary of the highlights of the leaders’ debate with our journalist Véronique Prince.

  • Who are the winners and losers?

    We analyze the leaders’ debate in Newscast with Céline Galipeau as well as with the panelists Michel David, daily political commentator The dutyHélène Buzzetti, political columnist for Information Co-opsand journalist Paul Wells.

  • “Obviously, he had forgotten his words, which were very clear,” said the PQ leader of the assertion of Francois Legault, who had presented his party as a federalist option in the last debate, remarks that the outgoing Prime Minister tried to qualify this evening.

    “There is no transparency,” added Mr. St-Pierre Plamondon about Mr. Legault’s political allegiances. He reiterated his appeal to the sovereignists of the province to return to the fold and find their place within the Parti Québécois.

  • Paul St-Pierre Plamondon was the last party leader to appear before reporters. The question of Quebec sovereignty was raised from the outset. A choice that has an impact on the future of Quebeche said.

    Is this question still relevant? Without a doubt, according to the PQ leader, who judges that a federal government is “too much” and prevents Quebec from developing.

  • “Mr. Legault called you an agitator, how did you experience this moment of the debate? »

    It seems that in view of this affirmation, Eric Duhaime chose to rise above the fray by continuing to talk about mental health.

    I was very surprised. We were talking about mental health and he decided to attack me on the health crisishe commented before issuing a warning against the crisis that awaits Quebecers at the end of the pandemic.

    Mr. Duhaime nevertheless accused Mr. Legault of having changed the methodology to take numbers that make it look better moving from “number of deaths” to “excess mortality” to assess the impact of the pandemic in Quebec.

  • In a scrum, the leader of the Conservative Party of Quebec, Eric Duhaime, claimed to have particularly appreciated his exchanges with his rival CAQ Francois Legault about the third link, after which he reiterated his attacks in this file.

    Like you, I noticed that he still does not want to make public the studies he has in handhe accused.

    Mr. Duhaime considers this exchange to be one of the most important of the evening.

  • Éric Duhaime was disqualified during the pandemic. He was not in solidarity with the seniors of Quebecasserted Francois Legault.

  • The CAQ leader devoted a large part of his speaking time to attacking the co-spokesperson for Québec solidaire, Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois. Is this the sign of a race for two?

    Mr. Legault took advantage of the question to attack QS’s environmental plan again. “In terms of reducing [émissions de] GES is magic for Mr. Nadeau-Dubois. Me too, I would like it to go so fast, but it’s impossible! he repeated.

  • In front of journalists Mr. Legault had to defend his exchange with Dominique Anglade regarding the decline of women in Quebec society, an exchange in which the Liberal leader insisted on the lack of places in daycare centers, which would prevent many women from returning to the market work.

    “I find that she is in such a bad position to talk about child care! The Liberal government had increased child care fees. We corrected it, and we brought it back to a single price, ”he defended himself.
