Harper challenges Ignatieff to one-on-one debate

Stephen Harper has challenged his Liberal rival, Michael Ignatieff, to a one-on-one televised debate. "We could also have a debate between Mr. Ignatieff and myself," Harper said while campaigning in Brampton, Ont., where the Tories hope to make inroads into a traditional Liberal stronghold. Ignatieff quickly welcomed the prospect of going "toe-to-toe" with Harper. "Anytime, anyplace," he said in Vancouver. "Canadians want a debate of principles. I think Canadians want a debate between hope and fear. ... I welcome that debate any day." Meanwhile, the all-party debate will be Tuesday April 12 in English and Thursday April 14, in French.
