Quebec Bar Association Teams Up With Montreal Radio Station for Second Season of Debates
Every week, 2 teams of university debaters face off on a controversial public topic in front of a jury made of up student reps, members of the Bar and well-known Québec personalities. All shows are archived on the Droit de Cité website.
The first debate of the new season will happen on October 2, 2013 and will deal with the right of employees of the province's school system to wear religious symbols.
The Quebec Bar Association has been quite innovative in its outreach to the general public using web-based media as well as traditional broadcast media. It is already the co-producer of the television series Le Droit de savoir ("The Right to Know") on the Canal savoir cable channel and on the Télé-Québec public educational channel in Quebec.
