Quebec Bar Association Teams Up With Montreal Radio Station for Weekly Debate Show

The Quebec Bar Association has teamed up with Montreal radio station CIBL 101,5 and the Juripop legal clinic to organize a weekly radio debate program called Droit de Cité.

Every week, 2 teams of university debaters face off on a controversial public topic. Members of the public get to vote online to determine which team wins. All shows are archived on the Droit de Cité website.

The show started in the second half of October and will last 31 weeks.

Topics so far have included:
  • Should Quebec set up its own firearms registry?
  • Should the City of Montreal install residential water metres?
  • Should Quebec political parties get all of their financing from the government?
This week's topic will have to do with government subsidies to private schools.

The Quebec Bar Association has shown itself to be quite innovative in its outreach to the general public. It is already the co-producer of the television series Le Droit de savoir ("The Right to Know") on the Canal savoir cable channel in Quebec.
