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.

I am getting tired of the moderator allowing Trudeau to speak more than the others.

“I’ll leave the pomp to you Justin” Good line Mr. Mulcair!

Cap and Trade = Code for higher taxes and oppressive regulations. The results of which would be massive unemployment, and a decimated economy.

No one ever talks about how it takes 1 tonne of rare earth metals mined in CHINA, of all places, to make one solar panel.
commented 2015-09-28 20:30:31 -0400
Wow! Mulcair saying Harper was right! A landmark event.

Gota beg angry Tom to get involved?

Yes you moron. We got rid of the coal plants and built all those expensive solar plants and windmills. Dumb move.
commented 2015-09-28 20:29:39 -0400
Harper: That is factually untrue.
Trudeau: I know, but I can’t win on facts. So, stop citing the facts.
commented 2015-09-28 20:29:34 -0400
What Trudeau is really saying is that the environmentalism will be the economy if he became prime minister.

Ontario’s Green Energy Act is the template for Trudeau which mean higher energy costs for citizens and businesses.

Interesting that both Quebec politicians choose to speak only in French on this issue! They clearly do not want the rest of Canada to hear what they want to say.

MP Harper you are a true leader and it shows in this debate.
commented 2015-09-28 20:27:42 -0400
Good analysis, Ron. Love it.

The moderator is allowing Justin to talk more than all the rest.
commented 2015-09-28 20:27:07 -0400
It’s like watching the Globe Trotters playing their road show team… Justin is being spanked

I’ve never heard someone talk so much and yet say so little.

Harper: These are the facts.
Trudeau: Stop citing the facts. I don’t want to hear it.
commented 2015-09-28 20:26:25 -0400
The ENTIRE focus on CO2, is based on lies and politically motivated wealth redistribution. Unfortunately, the Conservatives have the Media to fight on this one, and that battle is not one to be waged during a debate. It’s clear that the NDP/Liberal approach will decimate the economy of Canada on a whole, just as it is now destroying the economy of Alberta!
commented 2015-09-28 20:26:07 -0400
The Liberal did nothing to curb the climate change (or global warming at that time).
commented 2015-09-28 20:25:45 -0400
Mulcair is a communist and a UN brown noser. The UN is a collection of glorified mosques with offices catering to islam and doing nothing for non muslims. Mulcair will turn Canada into Canadistan.
commented 2015-09-28 20:25:14 -0400
Harper is all over them…..love it!
commented 2015-09-28 20:24:36 -0400
Justin is making up crap. Certainly someone must take him to task on his lies.
commented 2015-09-28 20:24:18 -0400
no Justin…. the environment is important but without an economy we have no money to sustain out climate…it all costs money Justin

Water vapour is also NOT a pollutant. Stephen, please don’t except their phony premise .

This climate change garbage is annoying. Of course climate changes, but all by itself with no help from humankind.
commented 2015-09-28 20:23:17 -0400
What a waste of money. Spend the money on infrastructure necessary for a very slighter warmer, greener (CO2 wise) Canada
commented 2015-09-28 20:23:13 -0400
Trudeau is a jerk.

Carbon Dioxide is NOT a pollutant.
