With less than two weeks before Quebecers head to the polls on Oct. 3, representatives from four of the province’s main political parties participated in a debate about issues affecting Indigenous people, in hopes of getting their votes.

Organized by the Assembly of First Nations Quebec Labrador (AFNQL), representatives from the Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ), the Parti Québécois (PQ), Québec Solidaire (QS) and the Quebec Liberal Party (PLQ) took part in the bilingual exchange at HEC Montréal Tuesday night, spending almost two hours answering questions from members of Indigenous communities.

The Conservative Party of Quebec (PCQ) did not take part.
