CFN – An incensed Mark A MacDonald has challenged one of his opponents to a one on one debate after alleged comments from PC candidate Jim McDonell reached him related to the debate in Winchester Thursday night.
The debate featured questions from the crowd directed at up to two of the candidates which for the most part were directed at Liberal candidate MacDonald and Mr. McDonell.
The issue stemmed from Mr. MacDonald calling Mr. McDonell on the question of nurses who had lost their jobs.

Mr. MacDonald has issued a challenge to Mayor McDonell to face him off in a one on one debate:
I’m prepared to take on Jim McDonell in an actual debate. Any time, any place, and without notes!
The reference to the notes Mr. MacDonald explained was that he felt at Mayor McDonell had been sticking to scripts as he visibly is reading from sheets of paper at most of their exchanges.
We at The Cornwall Free News are prepared to video and moderate the debate at the location and time of choice by Mayor McDonell if he wishes to accept the challenge. What do you think? Should these two have an actual debate on the issues as opposed to the trading of barbs that has taken place at most of the “debates” so far?
