Leaders Debate Transcript

The next Canadian federal election happens on May 2nd, 2011. The leaders of each political party will have in total a little over a month to campaign. I’m not confident in the ability of any of them to lead the country, and last night’s leaders debate didn’t help, though I admit Jack Layton didn’t remind me of Alex Trebek as much as I thought he would. Way to go Jack! My favourite moment from Jack was when he said this — and I quote:

“Stephen Harper’s tax cuts are for wealthy corporations, who will just use them to, I don’t know, stuff their pillows, or something — I’ve never really understood how this stuff works. The New Democrats would provide a tax break to any corporation that created a job. That’s the best reason to vote New Democrat.”

Anyway, for those how missed the debate, the transcript is finally available online from Points of Information. If you care about Canada, I suggest you read it.
