Federal Conservative party leadership candidates take part in French-language debate | LIVE

Global News published this video item, entitled “Federal Conservative party leadership candidates take part in French-language debate | LIVE” – below is their description.

Candidates running for leadership of the federal Conservative party will appear on stage Wednesday night for its French-language debate.

The event is taking place in Laval, Que., north of Montreal, and comes as the deadline approaches for candidates to have their supporters signed up as party members in order to be eligible to vote in the leadership election.

Former Quebec premier Jean Charest and longtime Ottawa-area MP Pierre Poilievre are expected to dominate much of the debate as both can speak French fluently and have charted a path to victory through the province.

Patrick Brown can also speak French and has spent the race campaigning against a controversial secularism law in Quebec that prohibits some public servants in positions of authority from wearing religious symbols on the job, which he says is an affront to religious freedom.

Party members will also be watching if Leslyn Lewis has improved her French after she mostly stuck to a prepared script during the 2020 French-language leadership debate.

In This Story: Vote

Voting is a method for a group, such as a meeting or an electorate, in order to make a collective decision or express an opinion usually following discussions, debates or election campaigns. Democracies elect holders of high office by voting. Residents of a place represented by an elected official are called “constituents”, and those constituents who cast a ballot for their chosen candidate are called “voters”. There are different systems for collecting votes, but while many of the systems used in decision-making can also be used as electoral systems, any which cater for proportional representation can only be used in elections.

In smaller organizations, voting can occur in different ways. Formally via ballot to elect others for example within a workplace, to elect members of political associations or to choose roles for others. Informally voting could occur as a spoken agreement or as a verbal gesture like a raised hand or electronically.
