Canada Election 2019 Leaders’ Debate


>>THIS IS A “GLOBAL NEWS” SPECIAL PRESENTATION. [ ♪♪ ]>>HELLO. I’M ROBIN GILL AND THANK YOU FOR JOINING OUR SPECIAL POST DEBATE COMFORTABLE. THIS IS A BIG NIGHT FOR ALL SIX MAJOR PARTY LEADERS WHO SQUARED OFF ON THE SAME STAGE FOR THE FIRST TIME. OUR VERY OWN DAWNA FREES EPP WAS ONE OF THE MODERATORS. LET’S GET RIGHT TO THE HIGHS AND LOWS. TO HELP US TAKE US THROUGH WHAT’S AT STAKE WE’RE JOINED BY, IN TORONTO BY OUR NATIONAL EDITOR ERIC SORENSEN AND DARRELL BRICKER OF IPSOS. OUR OTTAWA BUREAU CHIEF MERCEDES STEPHENSON IS KEEPING AN EYE ON THE DEBATE. NOI, IF YOU DIDN’T SEE ANY PART OF THE DEBATE, HERE’S A LONGER EXCHANGE THAT CALCULATES WHAT THIS NIGHT WAS ALL ABOUT.>>Elizabeth May: YOU BOUGHT A PIPELINE. YOU CAN’T BE A CLIMATE LEADER AND SPEND 10 TO $13 BILLION MORE ON A PROJ THAEKT BY ITSELF BLOWS THROUGH OUR CARBON BUDGET.>>A SLOGAN IS NOT A PLAN, MISS MAY. IT IS AN UNREALIZABLE PLAN.>>Elizabeth May: NO.>>Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau: CANADIANS NEED THAT ACTION THAT IS GOING TO ACTUALLY MAKE US BETTER FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE, PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT AND BUILD A STRONGER ECONOMY FOR OUR KIDS.>>Elizabeth May: LET — WITH ALL DUE RESPECT –>>Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau: MORE OVER THE PAST FOUR YEARS THAN ANY GOVERNMENT IN THE HISTORY OF CANADA.>>Elizabeth May: NO. THAT’S NOT TRUE. PAUL MARTIN DID MORE. NO ONE REMEMBERS PAUL MARTIN’S PLAN IN 2005. IT WAS BETTER. BUT THE REALITY — [ Talking simultaneously ]>>Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau: OVER THE PAST FOUR YEARS, WE DELIVERED ON IT.>>Elizabeth May: FIRE IN A FOUR-STOREY BUILDING, GETING A ONE-STOREY LADDER DOESN’T DO IT.>>Andrew Scheer: COMPLETELY FALSE. JUST BECAUSE YOU SAY SOMETHING OVER AND OVER AGAIN DOESN’T MAKE IT TRUE.>>Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau: NICE OF YOU TO LEARN THAT, MR. SCHEER.>>Andrew Scheer: THERE’S NO CANADIAN WHO BELIEVES THEY’RE GOING TO BE BETTER OFF IF THEY PAY A CARBON TAX. HAVE YOU GIVEN A MASSIVE EXEMPTION TO THE COUNTRY’S LARGEST POLLUTERS.>>Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau: PARLIAMENTARY BUDGET OFFICE — [ Talking simultaneously ] 80% OF CANADIANS ARE BETTER OFF UNDER OUR –>>Andrew Scheer: NOBODY BELIEVES IT, YOUR NUMBERS, JUSTIN.>>Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau: YOU DO NOT WANT TO ACT ON CLIMATE CHANGE, MR. SCHEER. [ Talking simultaneously ] REVERSING THE ONLY PLAY WE EVER HAD. [ Talking simultaneously ]>>THAT’S A FACT.>>ONE AT THE SAME TIME.>>Moderator: MR. SINGH AND THEN MR. BERNIER.>>Jagmeet Singh: I WANT TO SAY THIS DIRECTLY TO CANADIANS. YOU DO NOT NEED TO CHOOSE BETWEEN MR. DELAY AND MR. DENY. THERE IS ANOTHER OPTION.>>Robin: LET’S BRING IN MERCEDES STEPHENSON. THINGS GOT QUITE HEATED BETWEEN LEADERS, PARTICULARLY BETWEEN JUSTIN TRUDEAU AND ANDREW SCHEER. YOU ALL SAW AT THE END HOW COMFORTABLE N.D.P. LEADER JAGMEET SINGH SEEMED ON STAGE AND THERE WERE MANY MORE MOMENTS LIKE THAT. WHAT STOOD OUT FOR YOU?>>Mercedes: WELL, WHAT REALLY STOOD OUT FOR ME WAS THE AMOUNT OF PASSION YOU SAW. WE HAVEN’T SEEN THEM ENGAGED DIRECTLY BEFORE. AT TIMES IT WAS DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND THEM BECAUSE THEY WERE ALL TRYING TO OVERTALK EACH OTHER. NO ONE WANTED TO CEDE THE FLOOR WHICH WAS A CHALLENGE. YOU REALLY SAW THEM GET INTO DIRECT CONFRONTATION AND TAKE EACH OTHER ON. WHAT WAS INTERESTING TO ME IS JUSTIN TRUDEAU, WHO’S THE INCUMBENT, HAS THE MOST TO LOSE. HE MANAGED NOT TO BE THE MOST ATTACKED PERSON IN THAT DEBATE EVEN THOUGH HE’S BEEN THE PRIME MINISTER FOR THE PAST FOUR YEARS. AND WHEN YOU’RE THE INCUMBENT THAT’S REALLY THE STRATEGY. YOU DON’T NEED TO WIN THE DEBATE BUT YOU ALSO DON’T WANT TO LOSE T.ANDREW SCHEER TOOK A LOT MORE OF THE ATTACKS BUT HE WAS ALSO MORE AGGRESSIVE THAN HE’S BEEN IN THE PAST. JAGMEET SINGH, SOME OF THE BEST LINES ON THE NIGHT HE DELIVERED ON CLIMATE “MR. DELAY AND MR. DENY” AND ALSO ON WOMEN’S RIGHTS WHERE HE SAID A MAN HAS NO PLACE IN A WOMAN’S RIGHT TO CHOOSE. SO HE HAD SOME REALLY POWERFUL LINES. ALSO INTERESTING MR. BLANCHET HAD SUCH A LARGE ROLE IN THE ENG DISH DEBATE. HE REALLY WADE UNDER AND TOOK PEOPLE ON ON THE PROVINCES ESPECIALLY ON BILL 21, WHICH AS YOU KNOW SOME FEDERAL LEADERS HAVE BEEN RELUCTANT TO REALLY CONDEMN BECAUSE THERE’S A LOT OF VOTES CONNECTED TO THAT IN QUEBEC. OF COURSE WE HAD MR. BERNIER ON THE STAGE, WHICH WAS VERY CONTROVERSIAL. AND HE TRIED TO OWN THE STAGE AT TIMES BUT HE WASN’T REALLY SUCCESSFUL IN DOING THAT.>>Robin: ERIC, LET’S BRING YOU IN. SIX LEADERS. THAT’S A LOT TO TAKE IN AND EVERYONE WAS TRYING TO GET A WORD IN. WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF ALL OF THAT?>>Eric: YOU HAD THE PRIME MINISTER, AS YOU WOULD EXPECT, IN ALL OF THE DEBATES THAT WE’VE SEEN THROUGH HISTORY AS THE PRIME MINISTER IS THE PERSON THAT’S AT THE CENTRE OF THIS. THEY ALL WANT MORE VOTES THAT BELONG TO THE PRIME MINISTER’S PARTY FROM THE PREVIOUS ELECTION. SO THEY ALL GO FISHING IN HIS SWIMMING POOL AND SO YOU HAVE SCHEER NOT LAYING A GLOVE ON SINGH BUT GOING AFTER TRUDEAU. YOU HAVE SINGH NOT LAYING A GLOVE ON SCHEER BUT GOING AFTER TRUDEAU SO HE WAS VERY MUCH THE TARGET IN ALL OF THIS AND HE WAS I THINK, IN SOME WAYS TRYING TO EMBRACE THAT TO SAY IF IT’S CLIMATE VERSUS PIPELINES, WELL, WE ACTUALLY BELIEVE IN BOTH A PIPELINE AND CLIMATE WHILE THE OTHER TWO WERE SORT OF STAKING OUT THE TURF ON ONE SIDE OR THE OTHER. BUT, DARRYL, WHAT DID YOU READ FROM ALL OF THAT? DARRYL DARRYL I THOUGHT THE PERSON WHO WAS THE MOST INTERESTING TONIGHT WAS MR. SINGH. HE SEEMED TO BE THE MOST AT EASE. HE WAS LAUGHING SEVERAL TIMES DURING THE COURSE OF THE DEBATE AND REALLY SEEMED TO, OF THE LEADERS THAT WE SAW TONIGHT, BE MOST COMFORTABLE IN THAT ENVIRONMENT. BASED ON WHAT WE’VE BEEN TRACKING TONIGHT ON BEHALF OF “GLOBAL NATIONAL,” WHAT WE’RE SEEING IS THAT HE ACTUALLY IS THE ONE, IF TWITTER TRAFFIC IS ANY SORT OF REPRESENTATION, WHO’S IMPRESSED THE MOST TONIGHT.>>Eric: TALK A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT THAT TWITTER TRAFFIC BECAUSE I WAS LOOKING AT THE GRAPHS YOU SHOWED AND IT WAS INTERESTING. THERE’S A VOLUME SIDE OF IT AND THERE’S A SENTIMENT SIDE. WHAT WERE YOU SEEING THERE?>>WE WERE SEEING THAT MOST OF THE CONVERSATION WAS OBVIOUSLY TAKING PLACE AROUND THE TWO BIG LEADERS. SO JUSTIN TRUDEAU AND ANDREW SCHEER. SCHEER A LITTLE BIT AHEAD IN TERMS OF OVER TRUDEAU IN TERMS OF SENTIMENT BUT THE LEAD WHO CONSISTENTLY ROSE BOTH IN TERMS OF VOLUME AND IN TERMS OF POSITIVE IMPRESSIONS ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT WAS JAGMEET SINGH.>>Eric: WE ONLY HEARD HIM THERE FOR A SECOND, ROBIN, WHERE HE SAID YOU DON’T HAVE TO PICK BETWEEN MR. DELAY AND MR. DENY. IT WAS A SHORT CLIP FROM HIM BUT IT WAS ONE OF THOSE THAT CAPTURED THE MOMENT OF SINGH KIND OF SHOWING OFF IN THIS, AND I THINK YOU WOULD AGREE, DARRYL, THAT IF SINGH IS DOING WELL, THAT’S NOT NECESSARILY GOOD NEWS FOR MR. TRUDEAU AND MIGHT BE BETTER NEWS FOR MR. SCHEER.>>WELL, IN FACT THAT’S WHAT THE WHOLE THING IS TONIGHT. IF MR. SCHEER CAN JUST SIMPLY HANG ON TO WHAT HE’S GOT AND TURN HIS VOTE OUT, HE’S ACTUALLY IN A PRETTY GOOD POSITION — SORRY TO DISAGREE WITH MRS. MAY. BUT WHEN YOU TURN OVER TO THE QUESTION OF THE PROGRESSIVE VOTE, THAT’S KIND OF BOUNDING AROUND BETWEEN AT LEAST THREE OPTIONS THAT WERE THERE ON THE STAGE TONIGHT. AND IF JAGMEET SINGH’S CAPABLE OF PULLING EVEN A COUPLE OF POINTS AWAY FROM JUSTIN TRUDEAU AND TURNING THEM OUT ON ELECTION DAY, IT’S ACTUALLY BETTER NEWS FOR MR. SCHEER THAN IT IS FOR ANYBODY ELSE.>>Robin: LET’S GO BACK TO ANDREW SCHEER FOR A SECOND HERE. RIGHT OFF THE BAT HE WENT ON THE ATTACK WITH TRUDEAU. LET’S HAVE A LISTEN HERE.>>Andrew Scheer: JUSTIN TRUDEAU ONLY PRETENDS TO STAND UP FOR CANADA. YOU KNOW, HE’S VERY GOOD AT PRETENDING THINGS. HE CAN’T EVEN REMEMBER HOW MANY TIMES HE PUT BLACKFACE ON BECAUSE THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS HE’S ALWAYS WEARING A MASK. HE PUTS ON A RECONCILIATION MASK AND THEN FIRES THE ATTORNEY GENERAL, THE FIRST ONE OF INDIGENOUS BACKGROUND. HE PUTS ON A FEMINIST MASK AND THEN FIRES TWO STRONG FEMALE M.P.s FOR NOT GOING ALONG WITH HIS CORRUPTION. HE PUTS ON A MIDDLE-CLASS MASK AND THEN RAISES TAXES ON MIDDLE-CLASS CANADIANS. MR. TRUDEAU, YOU ARE A PHONY AND YOU ARE A FRAUD AND YOU DO NOT DESERVE TO GOVERN THIS COUNTRY.>>Robin: ERIC, WE SUSPECTED THIS WOULD HAPPEN. HOW IS THIS NEGATIVITY GOING TO RESONATE WITH VOTERS?>>Eric: I THINK THEY HAD MADE A DETERMINATION IN THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY, AT THE OUTSET OF THE CAMPAIGN, THAT TO ATTACK MR. TRUDEAU, TO GO NEGATIVE SO TO SPEAK AGAINST MR. TRUDEAU WAS GOING TO PAY DIVIDENDS, AND I THINK YOU SAW THAT THE STRATEGY THERE PLAYED OUT IN THE TACTICS HERE, BECAUSE THAT CLIP YOU JUST SHOWED, THAT WAS LITERALLY TEN SECONDS INTO THE DEBATE THAT MR. SCHEER WAS ASKED ABOUT LEADERSHIP AND HE SPOKE ABOUT LEADERSHIP FOR A FEW SECOND AND THEN IMMEDIATELY WAS ON TO TRUDEAU WITH THOSE VERY HARSH COMMENTS, AND PROBABLY — YOU TELL ME, DARRYL — MAKING SOME GROUND WITH THAT?>>HE MADE SOME GROUND WITH THAT. WHAT WAS INTERESTING TO ME, ERIC, WAS THAT IT WASN’T REALLY REPRESENTATIVE OF HOW HE BEHAVED THROUGH THE REST OF THE DEBATE. IT WAS LIKE HE WAS GOING TO HIT HARD AT THAT ONE POINT. HE DID HIT AT A FEW OTHER POINTS BUT NOT NEARLY AS AGGRESSIVE AS THAT MERE 20 SECOND OF REALLY GOING AFTER JUSTIN TRUDEAU VERY DIRECTLY.>>Eric: WHEN THEY HAD A CHANCE TO GO THE EACH OTHER, IT SEEMED LIKE SCHEER WAS MORE INTO THE GAME OF WANTING TO REALLY ATTACK AND THEN NOT MAYBE AS MUCH WITH THE OTHER LEADERS. BUT THAT SCHEER WAS UP FOR THAT. TRUDEAU SEEMED TO BE KIND OF TAKEN ABACK LIKE HE’D TAKEN A BODY PUNCH AT ONE POINT AND THEN KIND OF DISAPPEARED A LITTLE BIT FROM THE MIDDLE OF THE DEBATE.>>HE DIDN’T HAVE A GREAT ANSWER.>>Robin: MERCEDES, YOU TALKED ABOUT THE FACT THAT TRUDEAU HAD TO DEBATE AS AN INCUMBENT. HOW DID HE FARE IN THAT 10 SECONDS ACTUALLY?>>Mercedes: WELL, I DON’T KNOW, YOU KNOW, I THINK HE FARED WELL IN THE DEBATE IN THAT HE MANAGED TO HOLD HIS GROUND AND STAND OUT. HAD HE TO DEAL WITH PRETTY SERIOUS ATTACKS AT TIMES BECAUSE OF COURSE, UNLIKE THE OTHERS, HE HAS A RECORD THAT HE HAS TO TRY TO DEFEND. HE WAS PASSIONATE ESPECIALLY ON THE CLIMATE CHANGE ISSUES. THAT’S WHERE YOU REALLY SAW HIM COME OUT BUT HE DIDN’T REALLY BREAK THROUGH ON THAT UNTIL THE END OF THE DEBATE. NONETHELESS, IF YOU CAN SUSTAIN BEING THE PERSON WHO’S TRYING TO CONVINCE PEOPLE TO VOTE FOR YOU WHILE YOU’RE UNDER ATTACK FROM ALL DIRECTIONS AND APPEAR CALM BUT ALSO STRONG, THAT’S REALLY THE LINE. THEY NEVER WANT TO LOOK LIKE THEY’RE TOO AGGRESSIVE IN THIS BUT YOU ALSO HAVE TO BE ABLE TO TAKE EACH LEADER ON AND I THINK HE DID RELATIVELY WELL IN MANAGING TO DO THAT TONIGHT AND WALKING THAT LINE.>>Robin: THROUGHOUT THE CAMPAIGN TRUDEAU HAS BEEN ATTACKING DOUG FORD. HERE’S ANOTHER EXAMPLE FROM TONIGHT.>>Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau: WITH CERTAIN PROVINCES RIGHT NOW, WE ARE FIGHTING ON THE DEFINING ISSUE OF OUR TIME. JASON KENNEY AND DOUG FORD AND OTHER CONSERVATIVE PREMIERS DON’T WANT TO DO ANYTHING ON CLIMATE CHANGE. WE NEED A GOVERNMENT IN OTTAWA THAT IS GOING TO FIGHT THEM AND FIGHT FOR CANADIANS ON CLIMATE CHANGE AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT WE’RE GOING TO DO.>>Robin: DARRYL, IS THIS STRATEGY WORKING?>>Darryl: PROVINCE OF ONTARIO. BUT I THOUGHT MR. SCHEER HAD A VERY INTERESTING REJOINDER A LITTLE LATER IN THE DEBATE WHEN HE ACTUALLY SAID MR. TRUDEAU, IF YOU’RE SO INTERESTED IN TAKING ON DOUG FORD, THERE’S AN OPENING IN THE PROVINCE OF ONTARIO FOR THE LEADER OF THE LIBERAL PARTY. MAYBE YOU SHOULD GO RUN THERE. IT WAS ONE OF THE ONLY TIMES WE ACTUALLY HEARD THE AUDIENCE LAUGH IN THE COURSE OF THE DEBATE. BUT I WOULD HAVE TO SAY THAT IT’S A REASONABLE POSITION FOR MR. TRUDEAU TO TAKE AND IT IS PAYING DIVIDENDS FOR HIM IN THE PROVINCE OF ONTARIO.>>Robin: WE’RE GOING TO GO BACK TO MERCEDES. MERCEDES, WAS THERE ANY SUBSTANCE HERE FOR ANY REAL DISCUSSION GIVEN THE FORMAT?>>Mercedes: WELL, YOU KNOW IT’S AN INTERESTING FORMAT BECAUSE THIS IS THE FIRST TIME WE’VE SEEN IT WITH THIS MANY LEADERS ON THE STAGE AND YOU HAD FIVE DIFFERENT MODERATORS ON TOP OF THAT. YOU DID STILL SEE SOME OF THOSE REALLY SPARKY MOMENTS OF ENGAGEMENT WHICH WE WEREN’T SURE THEY WOULD GET BUT IT’S AN AWFUL LOT OF ISSUES, NOT A LOT OF CHANCE FOR FOLLOW-UP AND A LOT OF PEOPLE TALKING OVER EACH OTHER. THERE WAS THOUGH I THINK MORE SUBSTANTIVE POLICY DISCUSSION TONIGHT THAN WE’VE SEEN AT SIGNIFICANT POINTS IN THE ELECTION CAMPAIGN, WHICH HAS BEEN PRIMARILY DOMINATED BY LEADERS ATTACKING EACH OTHER. THAT WAS STILL THERE TONIGHT BUT YOU HAD THEM ACTUALLY TALKING ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE, INDIGENOUS ISSUES ALTHOUGH FRANKLY THEY SKATED OVER A LOT OF THAT AND TURNED IT INTO A CLIMATE CHANGE AND PIPELINE DEBATE BUT THEY ACTUALLY WERE FORCED TO START TALKING A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT THEY DO AND TRYING TO DIFFERENTIATE AND MAKE THEMSELVES MORE DISTINCT FROM OTHERS. THERE’S BEEN A LOT OF FEEDBACK FROM VOTERS AND VIEWERS WHO SAY THEY’RE FRUSTRATED WITH SORT OF NASTY MUDSLINGING THAT’S BEEN GOING ON AND THERE WAS STILL TONES OF THAT TONIGHT BUT YOU AT LEAST HAD SOME SERIOUS DISCUSSIONS ON AREAS THAT ARE OF CONCERN TO CANADIANS.>>Robin: DARRYL, LET’S GO BACK TO YOU FOR A SECOND. WHAT DID YOU THINK ABOUT THE FORMAT?>>A LOT OF PEOPLE DOING A LOT OF TALKING TONIGHT, AND THAT INCLUDED NOT JUST THE DEBATERS BUT THE MODERATORS. IT WAS A PRETTY FULSOM CROWD, I WOULD SAY, ON THE STAGE. THE REAL SHAME HERE IS THAT WE’RE ONLY GOING TO GET ONE ENGLISH LANGUAGE DEBATE IN THE COURSE OF THIS CAMPAIGN. AND AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE DISCUSSION TONIGHT, THERE’S AN AWFUL LOT MORE THAT NEEDS TO BE DISCUSSED.>>Robin: ERIC, IS THERE ENOUGH FOR VOTERS TO DECIDE WHAT THEY’RE GOING TO DO WITH THIS?>>Eric: WELL, YOU KNOW, IT’S INTERESTING BECAUSE ONE OF THE THINGS WE’VE SEEN IN THE CAMPAIGN SO FAR IS THAT VOTERS HAVE NOT MOVED VERY MUCH. EVEN WHEN THERE HAVE BEEN, YOU KNOW, VERY HOT-BUTTON ISSUES THAT HAVE ARISEN, THE NUMBERS HAVE MOVED A BIT AND THEN THEY’VE RHEE SETTLED DOWN AGAIN. I DON’T KNOW THAT WE’VE SEEN A LOT TONIGHT THAT WOULD MOVE A LOT OF THOSE VOTERS. YOU SAW WHERE THE LEADERS ALL STAKED OUT THE TERRITORIES YOU EXPECTED OF THEM. YOU KNOW, ELIZABETH MAY ON CLIMATE, MR. SINGH ON THE ISSUES HE WAS LOOKING AT. MR. SCHEER GOING AFTER MR. TRUDEAU. MR. TRUDEAU TRYING TO BRIDGE THAT GAP BETWEEN THE LEFT AND THE RIGHT. I DON’T KNOW THAT THEY WILL HAVE MOVED A LOT OF VOTERS, BUT THEREIN LIES THE FIGHT FOR ALL OF THEM JUST TO GET AT VOTES, TO MOVE A FEW VOTES IN A FEW RIDINGS THAT CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE ON ELECTION NIGHT.>>Robin: ERIC, WAS THERE A SPECIFIC ISSUE, THOUGH, THAT WAS ILLUMINATED?>>Eric: I’D SAY PROBABLY, AS MERCEDES WAS SAYING, IT WOULD BE CLIMATE BECAUSE IT KEPT WEAVING ITS WAY BACK INTO THOSE OTHER TOPICS AND IT WAS ALSO THE ONE THAT WENT AT THE END, YOU DO LOSE SOME OF YOUR VIEWERS AFTER, YOU KNOW, ALMOST TWO HOURS. THEY DROP OFF A LITTLE BIT, HAVI

  1. What an annoying video. I guess it was somewhat unfair how so much of it was focused on challenging bernier – but at the same time bernier is just SO annoying. His english is honestly quite bad at times(not just the accent) and he talks over everyone nonstop. His tactic of silencing people by making it impossible to talk and everyone having to raise their voice to talk to him is so terrible.

  2. Since trudeau has been in my family has been repededly put in danger of being homeless . My husband is an equipment operator that is a great job but it's too expensive to live any more your killing the people of Canada

  3. 1nova Scotia every year 3x the amount of the US 😲. did every one hear that use your brains it's not manageable. PPC repededly tryed to say they do want imagination but not so many that we can't manage .

  4. Maxime Bernier got my vote. Him and Blanchet are the only one’s that are truthful with their intentions and are straight forward. No more LibCons

  5. A simple question will put Singh in the dock – “ Mr Singh you have in the past supported and attended rallies honouring Talwinder Singh Parmar the mastermind of the worse act of terrorism on Canadian soil – bombing of Air India flight 182. You have also attended rallies which called for violence in Indian state of Punjab for a separate state of Khalistan. Do you Sir, continue to do such acts? and if yes, would it not be declaring war on the largest secular democratic & nuclear country of India? And if not, will you apologize for causing hurt to thousands of Hindu & Sikh families who lost their loved ones to Khalistani terrorists and are now living peacefully in India?”

  6. Blanchet c'est le seul qui défend les intérêts des québécois et québécoises. Le reste des candidats (sauf scheer )disent une chose devant le Québec (débat en français) et ne se gênent pas de parler mal du Québec devant les canadiens anglophones pour gratter quelques votes. Bref bravo au Bloc, Blanchet a mon vote!

  7. How to take a dump on quebecers… we will remember…. anglos don't understand that we are separating the religion from the state and this is what we did for the last 70 years. We have a long history with it and we just want to cut its influence in our lives. We did it for the women rights, we did it for the rights of the LGBT+… and now we are doing it for our kids…

    The right of an individual will never have precedence on the right of the community, sorry hypocrites.

  8. wow, the trolls have been busy. Look at their profiles (almost empty but not quite) and who they promote (Bernier), who they are against (liberals). Coincidence? I think not. Either Bernier is knowingly a puppet of Putin or he's just copying Trumpist speeches (socialism socialism! as if we spoke about that much in Quebec!) in the hope he can somehow pull it off.

  9. My prediction of what I have seen so far, the next government will be Liberal with a minority, it was a mistake by Trudeau interfere with Quebec politics, Quebecers are pissed off and Trudeau needs Quebec for a majoraty, thank you Bloc Québequois.

  10. All they did was team up against Trudeau. they never stated their own ideas. They simply tried to explain how Trudeau's ideas have so called "downsides"

    I'm an immigrant from Pakistan and my vote is for Bernier. He is the only one standing up for real economic issues, Canadian values, free speech, no political correctness, and pro-Canada immigration policy in focusing on economic immigrants instead of a free-for-all. And unlike the other "leaders'" meaningless-robotic-rhetoric-on-a-loop, Bernier offers actual plans that make sense.

    Mass migration is a killer of countries and cultures as we see in Europe. It is just a tool of the NWO globalists to have more people who they control by handing out free benefits, and who will therefore vote for them without ever caring for what happens to the country. The European experiment has failed miserably, e.g Sweden, Belgium to name just two. In contrast, Poland and Hungary are the ones who have remained stable and sane through all the mess because they refused the imposed EU mass migration requirements. Nations need sovereign rights to protect their borders, and have policies that work for their own people first. When Canada is economically and socially stronger, it can be in a better position to help people in less privileged countries to build up their own countries and stabilize their own economies.
    The debate format was a joke and they were unfair in doing a smear job on one person right from the get go. I found that disgusting and I hope others would agree that it was a blatant attempt at skewing perception.
    I am sick of the climate fear-mongering false science based on false computer models that disregarded 100 years of actual recorded climate data because it didn't fit with their hypotheses. Why is that the prime focus of this debate? Nobody is talking about the letter that 500 real climate scientists wrote to the UN recently refuting all this psuedo-science hot air bubble. The "hockey stick" model has been proved false by real climatologists. It's just a money-making and power-gaining deception – just follow the money trail of the chief proponents and corporations benefiting from it. I believe in being responsible for the environment, not going senselessly ballistic about it. I don't like any fear controlling anybody's life because then you are ruled by fear and you make irrational decisions.

  12. These are politicians, all WORDS no solutions. Vote? Wake up and study for yourself, question everything, our oblivion abhors it. Politicians wont solve your problems, they only ambitiously seek to perpetuate themselves as corruptly insolvent and incompetently plundered at expense of meek believers without arrival toward any evidence. Blah Blah Blah…

  13. Canadian media and political system is doing a fine job of keeping the electorate uninformed and distracted from their real interests. The electorate sadly, will get what they deserve, elect and regret.

  14. I am not Canadian, but I see if conservative elected, they will form a puppet government for Trump in North! Seriously, their leaders receiving guides every other week from southern border! I never thought some Canadian be naive like this!

  15. These guys have no plans, nothing to offer – all others are inexperienced, incompetent, especially Mr. Singh and Scheer! lol

  16. 4 more years, huh? Should be like should have never had the first 4.

    4 years back, 4 years back. Was a mistake; 4 years back. There we go that's better. 😊

    Edit: Block Quebec, the man should not be PM on one account, he only fights for Quebec, not for Canada that is very Un-Canadian, yes Quebec is apart of Canada, good on them, yet Canada is not just Quebec. Stay provincial with a stance like that.

  17. Why is everyone worrying about making money and ignoring that without a predictable climate, we will continue to hemorrhage money on coastly infrastructure repairs due to extreme climate events, loss of crops from unpredictable weather. These are the corner stones of our ecomny, everyone needs somewhere to live and something to eat. These core needs must be addressed by minimizing climate change and with this it will allow us to have a productive and successfull economy. Anyone ignoring this enormous factor is missing the most important factor in protecting and growing our economies.

    I have a hard time listening to what anyone but Elizabeth May has to say. They seem to all be worrying about secondary, tertiary, and further issues. Lets solve the real problem we are out of time to worry so much about less important issues. Everyone else appears to be ignorant to the real problem looming over us. Lets stop bickering and get on this we are out of time.

  18. Lol I have always been conservative, but honestly this year I think I will vote for the people’s party (seem somewhat libertarian to me)

  19. Canada has way too many immigrants, if they don’t have $$ and skills to bring then they aren’t welcome, so many immigrants just take from society and never give anything back, only those who have money to spend in our country and skills to add to our society should be allowed

  20. His turban looks cute but it is focusing on his own culture and origin. By the way, this has nothing to do with race, color, gender, sexuality whatsoever; not a discrimination!
    In order to respect all cultural backgrounds, Canadian working environments should be kept free of any promotion regarding traditional and religious outfits and languages.

  21. Scheer calls Alberta oil clean energy. Shame. Is it clean Mr. Scheer? A cloud of noxious particles brewing in the air above the Alberta oil sands is one of the most prolific sources of air pollution in North America, often exceeding the total emissions from Canada's largest city, federal scientists have discovered. The finding marks the first time researchers have quantified the role of oil sands operations in generating secondary organic aerosols, a poorly understood class of pollutants that have been linked to a range of adverse health effects.

  22. Nice to see democracy taking place in a nation controlled by plutocrats who hate the historically majority of Canada which is white people. Future China colony in the next 50 years, mark my words. Say goodbye to a high trust society.
    Love from The United States.

  23. The Russian troll farm is here (in the comments) in full force pumping up the deeply unpopular ppc. Be wary real Canadian YouTubers.

  24. The nerve of these sheeps"four more years"?!?!!!!!!! How about four years in jail for trudel for groping a woman how about that

  25. CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE

  26. ME: Did you vote for green party
    Greta Thunberg: how dare y (looks ar cue cards) ou
    Greta Thunberg: and we w (looks ar cue cards) ill nwver forgi (looks ar cue cards) ve you

  27. Scheer  in   the first French debate  telling Quebecers to vote  him because he too was a Catholic was about the lowest ,sleaziest thing I ever heard come out of a politicians mouth

  28. You know if any political parties actually had Canada as their focus and making Canadians progress and thrive, they would all sit down at 1 table, throw ideas, listen and being polite, write down all the ideas, go through the pros and cons, and go with the beat ones, regardless of who’s party they belong to. However, I would strongly suggest that the bloc and the Green Party be thrown out!

  29. Trudeau is a CHAMELEON… Said a lot of things on 2015 but never delivered it to the people/climate and now he is promising all his lies again on this election time. He is a BIG FAT HYPOCRITE AND A JOKE LEADER IN THE WORLD STAGE… Most disrespected leader in the world now…What a JOKE!!! Laughed at worldwide for his charades….! what about your big pipeline Justin?

  30. Another asinine YAP FEST!

    But hey, if people get the tinglies from the FEEL GOOD LYING done by these CRISIS ACTOR PUPPETS, HEY who am i to interject REALITY!!!!!

  31. where are the french subtitles? i dont want to listen to the English translation it sounds so bad mixed in with the audio id rather hear the real language and read subtitles or captions
    ..im also learning french so its better?

  32. That was the most painful debate I've ever watched. ..
    If you want each person to have there time to talk. Mute everyone except the person talking. Then open the mic to everyone for open debate.
    Brutal…

  33. Scheer's response to the very first question asked by 'Regan' was totally disrespectful. He chose not to recognize or answer the question instead choosing to insult the PM. This continued throughout the debate…he lost my vote.

  34. Really wish the 2nd moderator would let the leaders finish their piece.. I know they have to stick to the time slots, but I find it kind of rude of her… Really like Max Bernier's policies. Also like what Scheer had to say, but I dont like his immigration policy. The East is just to volatile to be letting others into our country. Its unfortunate, might be bias even, but it is a very real reality. Singh has head in the clouds, no clue how to run a country, has all these cut breaks for families but no clear understanding of who will foot the bill.

  35. To all Maxime Bernier supporters.
    It breaks my heart to hear so much slander and false accusations against Max.
    Deep state at work without a doubt. We have a true leader with years of experience as minister of foreign affairs, industry and state with banking and finance expertise . He has radical ideas like balancing the budget in 2 years.
    He doesn't pander to any special groups but treats all like canadiens. His ideas will transform our country into safe and prosperous place to live. His declaration that there is no climate emergency is well based in science that the UN agenda blocks from public knowledge. Investigative journalists should get to the bottom of who is driving the Climate Strikes, Extinction Rebellions and so forth .. little digging ..oh the UN . Thanks god they running out of money.

  36. I remember in high school, in debate class/ on debate, the structure & rules of order surrounding constructive meaningful debates.
    I was astounded by how this debate was somewhat poorly run/structured. It’s obvious the ill fitting format & bizarre incomprehensible way a number participants over talked others, there’d be a substantial failing grade for constant interruptions, & not actually having an argument for proposal-topic with backup facts/statistics.
    This was especially the case with our Prime Minister Trudeau, who got way to entangled with bizarre bickering with his foe, Andrew Scheer, ( they were equally bad, considering they’re the neck’n neck favourites to win) … Meanwhile … right off the top Max Bernier came off like a total wing-nut waste of time, he really didn’t let anyone answer his quackery … what happened to the moderators?
    I’ll give exception to Elizabeth May & Jagmeet Singh, as they rose above the chaos, as they remained quite composed & focussed on their points with some great one liner comebacks! Not bad for the supposed “underdogs”.

  37. FFwd to 03:18:00 basically to beginning of debate proceedings.
    Dear Global, In your description, could you please just put a note where we can scrub forward to the actual debate start? Beyond the long opening with chanting crowds (very tiresome after 5min.), there’s endless empty moments of the museum’s exterior with sound of gushing fountain & chitchat murmurs … Lots of nonessential nonsense with this ( I know it’s a live feed but still … couldn’t there be some on-site commentary, if post-editing not possible?)

  38. Bill 21 🖕🏾… I hope the rest of the world knows Quebec is the worst province in Canada, so racist and selfish compared to the rest of us Canadians.

  39. I will still vote PC but I don,t like Scheer . I don,t think he is the man to take them to the top. Young people don,t care about things like the debt . They want the government to spend .

  40. Altia raj's expressions and cutting over was too rude and annoying to watch but the first moderator did a beautiful job.. pathetic job by mrs raj

  41. In the end this entire debate was 5 people saying what they want to do… and 1 person showing he didn't do what he said he was going to do…

    Is this really a surprise to anyone?

  42. M. Singh est dans les demi-vérité, puisqu'une loi sur la laïcité ne l'empêcherait pas d'être premier ministre à cause de son apparence, puisqu'il lui suffirait d'enlever son turban pour contourner le problème, mais aussi parce que ce turban est un symbole religieux, un symbole au même titre que n'importe quel symbole comme un drapeau par exemple, qui symbolise quelque chose. Les symboles parlent. Qu'il mette sur sa tête une croix gammée plutôt, pour voir si c'est simplement une question d'apparence. Ou encore, laisserait-on un premier ministre du Canada porter un drapeau des Etats-Unis sur la tête, même si c'est juste parce qu'il aime son apparence, ou parce que nous aimons les État-Unis? Aussi, on ne laisse pas porter une croix gammée à un premier ministre du Canada, car le Canada n'approuve pas les valeurs qui y sont associées. Or, le Canada approuve-t-il les valeurs associées au turban de M. Singh? Personnellement, il ne me dérange pas, mais techniquement parlant, même sans loi 21, il porte à controverse.

  43. All Candidates, except Maxime Bernier, are globalists and willing to continue, as Trudeau, the same Mass Immigration, the same Climate Change alarmism (not backed by real climate scientists) the same over-spending of our money in foreign countries, and the same Political Correctness and Censorship,
    My family and I have voted for Canada's Laws, Values & Principles and for a Sovereign Canada, not for Sale to the UN. People's Party Maxime Bernier PPC 2019!!! 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦

  44. Anybody else seriously considering not voting? I know its wrong but I don't feel comfortable with any of these so called leaders. We need new parties for Canada. Parties that aren't tied to corporate Canada or special interest groups, identity politics etc.

  45. Canada is falling behind because Ottawa is too inward looking. The Canadian Railways are state of the art in 1960. If any politician saw a bigger picture and ran on a platform of redoing the railways and factoring in the fact that it would all pay for itself in a few years of service. Millions or billions of tons of carbon waste saved by less flights across Canada.

  46. I think in the comment section we can have a better debate then this joke of a debate so my question is, who is the best candidate in the running so far? Use the replies to talk

  47. Singh is opposed to racism ? He is an unapologetic Sikh supremacist and wasn't allowed entry into India because of who he is in alliance with …. He talks a great game and must have had a successful law practice ..but I think he is a bigger racist than those he points his fingers at

  48. If i can vote i would vote for Jagmeet Singh he cares for people he can help family’s that need it my fingers are crossed for you buddy
