A Multi-Party Debate in Canada
- Voters in every nation on earth from Japan to Israel to Poland to Brazil have real multi-party elections and meaningful ballot choices . . . everywhere except in the U.S. where a corrupt two-party Wall Street funded oligarchy prevents multi-party debates and free elections.
(The Globe and Mail) - Four federal party leaders will go head to head tonight as they face off in the first election debate.
The economy is expected to be front and centre, as it has dominated the first few days of the campaign, but the debate will also touch on energy, the environment, democracy, foreign policy and security.
Stephen Harper, NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau and Green party Leader Elizabeth May hunkered down Wednesday to prepare for the debate, which runs from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. eastern daylight time.
The questions will be drafted by the magazine and won’t be distributed beforehand. The speaking order was decided in a draw, which was also kept confidential.
Observers expect Harper, as prime minister, to be the target of most of the debate attacks, but the Conservatives say he is ready.
