Rating a difficult debate
Most people whose comments I read hated last night’s debate. Too many leaders, too much talking over one another, not enough time to answer questions properly, too many sound bites. I agree the format was not very pleasant. I’m not sure how it could have been made better, mind you, but there you go.
I was asked four specific questions for a quick-reaction panel in the Ottawa Citizen and this is what I wrote. I would add that I was also surprised by how weak Justin Trudeau was at times. His performance was very uneven and I can’t imagine his team is especially happy this morning.
