Four of Canada’s party leaders squared off Thursday night for their first televised debate in the federal election campaign, with the COVID-19 pandemic and vaccinations taking centre stage.

The French-language debate featured Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh and Bloc Québécois Leader Yves-François Blanchet, who were on stage at the TVA network in Montreal.

It involved a series of face-to-face encounters between two people at a time, which led to longer and fiery exchanges. The event came midway through the campaign, as leaders hope to snap up votes before the election Sept. 20.
