St. Lawrence's Political Science and Debates Club
On September 25th, 2018, two of the four candidates for Quebec's main political parties in Jean-Talon, Mr. Patrick Provost for Québec Solidaire and Mr. Sylvain Barrette for the Parti Québécois, visited St. Lawrence for a town hall-style discussion on their respective party's program for the elections. Around 65 students and staff members attended and had the opportunity to ask their questions to the candidates. Some of the addressed topics were post-secondary education, the environment, taxes on businesses and immigration.
This event was made possible thanks to St. Lawrence's Political Science and Debates Club that organized and moderated the event. The Political Science and Debates Club would also like to thank Mr. Provost and Mr. Barrette for accepting the club's invitation and attending the discussion. Their presence was extremely appreciated.
