Candidates working for management of the federal Conservative celebration will seem on stage Wednesday evening for its French-language debate.
The occasion is going down in Laval, Que., north of Montreal, and comes as a deadline approaches for candidates to have their supporters signed up as celebration members to be able to be eligible to vote within the contest.
Former Quebec premier Jean Charest and longtime Ottawa-area MP Pierre Poilievre are anticipated to dominate a lot of the controversy as each can converse French fluently and have charted a path to victory by the province.
Patrick Brown also can converse French and has spent the race campaigning towards a controversial secularism legislation in Quebec that prohibits some public servants in positions of authority from sporting non secular symbols on the job, which he says is an affront to non secular freedom.
Social gathering members may even be watching if Leslyn Lewis has improved on her French after she largely caught to a ready script in the course of the 2020 French-language management debate.
Highlights from the Federal Conservative Management debate
Candidates will take the stage after a language reform invoice handed Quebec’s legislature that critics say goes too far in defending the French language by probably denying the province’s anglophones the power to entry providers like health-care in English.
