Liberals exploring creation of independent commission for leaders’ debates, but not all convinced of need

‘You never know from one election to the other what you’re going to get,’ says former NDP national director Karl Bélanger of the current system for leaders’ debates.

Former Conservative Party national campaign manager Jenni Byrne, left, says she's against the idea of the government creating a body to regulate federal leaders' debates, while former Liberal adviser Peter Donolo and former NDP national director Karl Bélanger say they're open to the idea.
