TORONTO — All party leaders invited to participate in two official election debates have confirmed their attendance in the events, which will be moderated by some of Canada’s top journalists.

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, Green Party Leader Elizabeth May and Bloc Québécois Leader Yves-François Blanchet have agreed to debate each other in English and French, the Canadian Debate Production Partnership (CDPP) announced Tuesday.

The English debate on Oct. 7 will be led by:

  • Althia Raj from HuffPost Canada
  • Susan Delacourt from the Toronto Star
  • Rosemary Barton from CBC News
  • Dawna Friesen from Global News
  • Lisa LaFlamme from CTV News

Each moderator will guide a distinct section of the debate.

The French event on Oct. 10, will be moderated by Patrice Roy from Radio-Canada, and feature journalists from Le Devoir, Le Soleil, La Presse and L’Actualité.

‘Meaningful and beautiful space’

This year’s debates, held more than a week before the election on Oct. 21, will be located at the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau, Que., which overlooks the Ottawa River across from Parliament Hill.

  1. Since there is a deliberate gender imbalance among the moderators, and a “sameness” of party platforms among the candidates, I can’t see any reason to watch this leftist love-in. If they were smart, if for no other reason than to achieve reasonable ratings, they would let Max join. He would cause poor Justin to cry, hapless Andrew to lose that smile, Jug to stutter, Saint Elizabeth to lose her temper. I don’t care what the Bloc candidate (whoever he is ) does. It would be something to watch. But no, we have to have a leftist love-in. No thanks.

  2. Talk about discrimination, not a male on the moderator panel and as such each person identifying as female here is just a liberal left leaning shill.

    THAT SAID WHO CARES! I KNOW WHO I AM VOTING FOR! Maxime Bernier for he is the only one who supports 152 years of Canadian and western world values.
