Dominique Anglade, leader of the Quebec Liberal Party, and Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, the parliamentary leader of Quebec Solider, want to be there. Paul St-Pierre Plamenton, leader of the Parti Québécois, also wants to go, but he could not yet confirm his presence on Sunday.
The event, which takes place the day after the Radio-Canada Leaders’ Debate, is organized by the Consortium of Labor, Community and Student Organizations. At least 50,000 students and 10,000 workers have accepted strike orders, said Francois Geoffroy, a spokesman for Workers for Justice.
Organizers have called for massive taxation to fund a transition to green energies and a complete transition away from fossil fuels by 2030. Leaders participating in the march are expected to take an oath in this regard.
