The reason why the national party candidates all sound the same is because these four parties all have the same globalist controllers. They are shoots of the same tree. The BQ can be a little different because they aren't really a threat to anybody and mostly serves to split the conservative vote in Quebec which works in the interest of the ruling liberal elite in Canada despite the fact that the BQ doesn't always toe the establishment line. This election is all about giving the people the illusion of choice while not doing anything to derail Trudeau's Great Reset targets set by the UN and the multinational banks. The one national party that actually stands for something unique, the PPC, was barred from the debates this year despite polling around 10% nationally which is higher than the BQ and Greens. Original thinking has always been a threat to authoritarianism.

I'm am American and I don't know just everything about how Canadian politics work, but it's been my understanding that a party has to be represented by at least one member of the parliament in order to participate in these leader debates; the case being that the lone People's Party of Canada MP was defeated in the 2019 election? Or do I misunderstand how the system works?

Anyway, conservative vote? There is no conservative vote in Quebec per se. As in other marginalized nations like Scotland, Quebec's politics break down more along nationalist vs. federalist lines than along a conventional left-to-right spectrum. The Bloc is a Quebec nationalist party. The country's federalists are just called the Liberal Party; the same party governing Canada at present.

Hoooo boy do I remember that 2019 leaders' debate that PPC leader Canadian Donald Trump Maxime Bernier participated in! I couldn't forget Bernier's role because his monumental ego compelled him to interrupted everyone else so constantly that he got like the majority of the air time despite being only one of six leaders on the stage. Blanchet was my favorite participant in that debate as well and the differences between the two of them really highlighted how different in nature Quebec nationalism is from Canadian nationalism. Namely, Bernier's hostility toward Quebec sovereignty really brought that home for me more than anything else. Blanchet considers all nations to be equals  and seeks out an equitable relationship with Canada, while Bernier rejected the idea that Quebec is a nation at all and wanted it politically and culturally subordinated to Canada in every way possible. "Original thinking!" Too bad for him that he lost his seat in that election and that the Canadian parliament has since come to officially recognize the nationhood of Quebec.

As to Quebec's ostensible irrelevance, I would note that it's pretty tough for any party to get a majority of parliamentary seats without holding a substantial number of seats in Quebec. The Bloc's entire purpose is to ensure that each government is a minority one, as this situation gives the Bloc, and therefore Quebec, maximum leverage to advocate for their own interests.
