Statement Regarding Question on Quebec's Bill 21 and Bill 96 During Last Night's English-language Debate

OTTAWA, ON, Sept. 10, 2021 /CNW/ – The Debate Broadcast Group has released the following statement regarding last night’s English-language debate and concerns regarding a question put to Bloc Québécois leader Yves-François Blanchet by debate moderator Shachi Kurl:

The question addressed these bills explicitly; it did not state that Quebecers are racist.

Shachi Kurl’s question regarding Quebec’s provincial Bill 21 and Bill 96 was asked to give Mr. Blanchet an opportunity to explain his party’s view of these bills, both of which have been widely reported on and discussed since they were introduced in the Quebec National Assembly. The question addressed these bills explicitly; it did not state that Quebecers are racist.

The Debate Broadcast Group, which includes APTN News, CBC News, CTV News and Global News for the English debate, selects the moderator and participating journalists, who have complete journalistic and editorial independence from the Leaders’ Debates Commission.
