Cornwall ON – So who do you think won the English Canadian Federal Election debate? I’m not sure anyone did, but if I were scoring points I’d probably give it to Gilles Duceppe which has a certain Canadian kind of irony to it.
There were no major surprises. The only leader to really lose there cool was Michael Ignatieff twice towards Jack Layton which I’m sure appealed to some soft Tory’s who thought Iggy a bit limp. Here is a link to our live coverage and wrap up. LINK
Jack Layton gets extra kudos for putting in a good performance in spite of his political situation and his own physical ailments.
And yes, I’ll even tip my hat to Prime Minister Harper to sticking to his game book and staying in his bubble of fictions. He played a very safe game of defense, trying to preserve his lead in the polls which would make Habs coach Jacques Martin very proud.
Here is a You Tube clips from the evening.
So Canada, what do you think about the debate? You can post your comments below.
