PM’s decision to participate in fewer French election debates than English ‘absolutely unacceptable,’ says Trudeau
Conservative MP Peter Kent, a former journalist, says broadcast consortium doesn't have monopoly on televised federal election debates. 'We quibbled over format, we quibbled over set design, we quibbled over timing,' he says.
Who wants a debate? Prime Minister Stephen Harper, NDP Leader Tom Mulcair, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau and Green Party Leader Elizabeth May. Mr. Harper recently said he will not participate in a nationally televised election debate organized by the Broadcast Consortium. The Hill Times photographs by Jake Wright
