Ezra's top 10 observations from tonight's leaders debate

Did you watch the foreign policy debate hosted by the Munk Centre tonight? It was pretty good — all three party leaders were on their game. 

Oddly, the CBC refused to broadcast the debate — strange, given their public mandate, and the $1 billion in taxpayer funds they get each year.

Ezra watched the debate, and made a list of ten moments that caught his attention — from Thomas Mulcair’s witty barbs against Justin Trudeau; to Trudeau’s love-letter to his father; to Stephen Harper playing the grown-up on everything from the environment to Canada-U.S. relations.

who are these sad sacs doing the punditry.

Francis said, “Why is the lie of AGW even an issue?”
Because its a huge part of their platform ( Justin, Tom)
They have too much invested in that lie, and all the related lies they use against Harper are part of their repertoire.

Justin says we should put terrorists with duel citizenship in jail instead of revoking Canadian citizenship.
That’s so he can let them out of jail after a short stint, and welcome them back into the fold, you know like we did with Omar.

I hate these debates, but I watch them.
I agree Francis P.

Kenton, I want to hit the “Like” button on your comment but I can’t find it.

Wow, Trudeau’s wife better be wary whenever Ibbitson gets near Justin. The guy is giving him a blowjob on the panel and Justin’s not even there.

I am not liking this Liberal panel. Give me Brian and Ezra.

Junior = tax and spend and then tax some more. When he’s not running to the UN to get his marching orders.

What’s really going on here is two parties walking an unbalanced tight rope of “change”. A gust of wind may give them support but they will lose their footing once the air settles.
commented 2015-09-28 21:17:01 -0400
Trudeau, what are you toking? The UN has NO credibility.
commented 2015-09-28 21:13:12 -0400
Where is Brian and Ezra?

If everyone talks about Trudea and how much of an idiot he is, then that doesnt mean a single vote will be going his way. It just means everyone doesnt like him. The poll means diddly squat. Being the most talked about is not necessarily the best thing.

So where is the Levant/Lilleypost-debate analysis?

What was the whisper when tom started talking!!!! HAHAHA someone doesn’t know the mike is on. “I’m gonna kill you when that happens”… LOL!!!!

Facebook data is irrelevant… Canadians were chatting about how dense JT is… ouch.
commented 2015-09-28 21:07:25 -0400
Still listening to the discussion after the debate and from my perspective, Trudeau looks worse now then before. The comments here clearly show that.
commented 2015-09-28 21:06:16 -0400
justin trudeau never won any debates at all where did they get off saying he won
commented 2015-09-28 21:06:04 -0400
The only reason the media claims Justin has won all the debates is because they are lying for him. Justin is their golden boy, so they will do anything, say any lie, to boost up their little puppy.
commented 2015-09-28 21:05:33 -0400
seriously him a strong position really
commented 2015-09-28 21:04:34 -0400
What a bunch of lefty fools.
John Ibbitson is a freekin’ dufus … he thought Trudeau did well ?
The Center idiot did not even listen to the debate or know the facts on revocation of Citizenship and “Ethnic” voters.
When did facebook become a scientific tool? Perhaps Chan, Conservatives spend less time on facebook than Liberals … dufus
commented 2015-09-28 21:04:11 -0400
Phenomenal! Two hours of debate, not one of the three once mentioned ‘the family’. Very strange. Shows ‘Canadian Values’??!!! , ,, very different from the USA who always mentions family as a prime priority.

Francis said, “Why is the lie of AGW even an issue?”

I wish I knew. But my guess is that the lie is still believed by many.
commented 2015-09-28 21:02:46 -0400
Yeah, he’s got that right.. no clue if positive or negative social media comments…
commented 2015-09-28 21:02:28 -0400
The issue of the Niqab, and the revocation of citizenship for convicted terrorists, is what is turning the tide away from the NDP/Liberals, and towards the Conservatives.
commented 2015-09-28 21:01:16 -0400
There is no debate over citizenship. If you become Canadian then try to blow it up, you are not a Canadian. If you can’t send them back, then do what you would do with a born Canadian. Read the statement of Sir Wilfred Laurier on immigrants becoming Canadian citizens.

Deporting a criminal immigrants is a law of nature … Trudeau is a closet muslim and the irony is that he doesn’t know it.
commented 2015-09-28 20:57:02 -0400
An immigrant terrorist degrades the value of Canadian citizenship by being a terrorist. Withdrawing the honor of becoming a Canadian to a terrorist is a no brainer.
commented 2015-09-28 20:56:50 -0400
Trudeau and Mulcair are unbelievable…as in NOT BELIEVABLE and UNCREDIBLE.
commented 2015-09-28 20:54:28 -0400
so mulcair and harper shook hands, mulcair and trudeau shook hands (initiated by Munclair’s approach)… and trudeau and harper ignore eachother… lol
