The Latest on the English-language leaders' debate among Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh, Bloc Québécois Leader Yves-François Blanchet and Green Party Leader Annamie Paul (all times local):

7:25 p.m.

A group of People's Party of Canada supporters have gathered on the street outside the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau, Que., across from Parliament Hill, where tonight's debate is being held.

Dressed in purple, they are holding signs with slogans supporting Maxime Bernier, the party's leader, while others have anti-Justin Trudeau slogans.

A speaker at a microphone is calling out the names of local candidates.

The sun is setting and the leaders have not yet arrived at the museum for the debate, which is set to begin at 9 p.m.
