Leaders come out swinging in French debate, fighting for Quebec votes

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer absorbed most of the body blows, but also fought back with some of the best zingers of the night.

Excerpt: “The first debate attended by Trudeau and the first in French, it was a crucial faceoff for the party leaders in a key battleground province. Quebec has 78 seats, nearly a quarter of the Canadian total, many of them swing ridings that could tip the balance for the parties. For many Quebec voters, it would be the first time they were able to see NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh and Scheer in action. Elizabeth May of the Green party and Maxime Bernier of the People’s Party of Canada were not invited, TVA said, because neither of their parties won a seat in Quebec in 2015.
