Negative reactions on social media were swift, with people pointing out the English-language debate is not happening in prime time in Ontario and Quebec, and is during the afternoon — and normal business hours — in Alberta and British Columbia.

The French-language debate is set for the same time as the NHL’s Montreal Canadiens season-opener against the Toronto Maple Leafs, which could be a factor in how many people watch that debate in real time.

The French-language debate will run an additional half-hour because it will include the Bloc Québécois, which has been excluded from the English-language debate.
