ELXN2021: The Federal Leaders Debate

Sat, Sep 11, 2021

That’s a wrap on the televised leaders debates in this federal election campaign. We are 10 days away from heading to the ballot box in the 44th Federal election. Polls are showing a tight race between the Conservatives and the Liberals, but no one is sniffing around majority territory. Thursday’s debate was the only English language debate and the Liberal leader was in the cross hairs of the other candidates. Did any of them make an impression?

The one thing not clearly answered by Justin Trudeau is why he called an election. Usually in these debates, everyone wants to make an impression—maybe a knockout punch. The issues on the table for discussion in the one and only English language debate were: Climate change, indigenous reconciliation, affordability and the COVID-19 pandemic. The issues were selected by the Federal Election Broadcast Group.

On our podcast, we’ll chat with Darrell Bricker, CEO of Ipsos Public Affairs. As well, David MacDonald, Senior Economist at the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives. Leading it off is Warren Kinsella, Political commentator and Special Advisor to PM Jean Chrétien.
