Five English-language media outlets in Montreal have written to Quebec Premier Pauline Marois requesting an English provincial leaders' debate.
Pauline Marois has stated publicly that there will be only one debate, in French, during the next election campaign. It's expected it will be called on Wednesday.
The letter from CJAD, CTV News, the Gazette, Global News and CBC News states, "We feel strongly that English speaking Quebecers deserve an opportunity to hear directly from you in their language."
The consortium is proposing a 90-minute debate broadcast live on all platforms: TV, radio and online.
The 24-hour CBC and CTV news networks have also expressed an interest in carrying the debate live.
The consortium is hoping the debate will be held in the final two weeks of the campaign.
