TV debate row settled


A row which has been overshadowing the Canadian general election for the past two weeks has finally been settled. From the start of the campaign the argument has raged over how a TV debate should be formatted and who should attend.

The final decisions is that the leaders of all four of the parties currently represented in parliament will debate one on one for six minutes each, over a two hour debate which will be screened on Tuesday 12th April. The order of the debate has been decided in a blind draw.

The Greens, who had fought hard to be included have been told that because they are not represented in parliament they will not be included.
