Liberal leader Justin Trudeau will debate his rivals for the first time in the first French-language debate of the 2019 campaign. Tonight, he’ll share the stage with every leader who won a Quebec seat in 2015: Conservative leader Andrew Scheer, NDP leader Jagmeet Singh and Bloc Québécois leader Yves-François Blanchet. Green leader Elizabeth May was excluded from the debate, as was People’s Party leader Maxime Bernier, who won his seat as a Conservative.
