Ottawa Tonight : Federal Election Debate
Although millions of eyes will be glued to TV screens tonight during the US Vice-Presidential debate between Sen. Joe Biden and Gov. Sarah Palin, there's another important debate.
Yes, they do have debates in Canada, and tonight is the Federal Election Debate, in English from Ottawa. The leaders of the five parties will be present for the three-hour debate: Stephen Harper of the Conservatives, Stéphane Dion of the Liberals, Jack Layton of the NDP, Gilles Duceppe of the Bloc Québécois and Elizabeth May of the Green Party.
The moderator is Steve Paikin of TVOntario and it will be broadcast beginning at 9 PM EDT. Last night was the French language debate.
Tonight's debate will also be streamed online.
