Quebec Liberal Leader Dominique Anglade is on a media blitz today to raise her profile ahead of next week's election.

Anglade is scheduled to conduct no fewer than six media interviews in Montreal and Quebec City before attending a gala this evening in the provincial capital for young student achievers.

Meanwhile, Coalition Avenir Québec Leader François Legault is campaigning for a second day in Îles-de-la-Madeleine, where post-tropical storm Fiona caused significant damage to seaside infrastructure.

Polls say the CAQ is in a tight race on the island archipelago with the Parti Québécois, whose candidate Joël Arseneau won the riding by 15 votes over his Liberal rival in 2018.

Legault will head to the Gaspé Peninsula later in the day and then visit two ridings in Quebec's Côte-Nord region.

Québec solidaire spokesman Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois has four events in the Quebec City area today before he campaigns in the riding of Sherbrooke, Que., where his incumbent candidate is trying to fend off Caroline St-Hilaire, a star candidate for the CAQ.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 27, 2022.
