Good rundown on the remaining debates by L. Ian MacDonald

"The first one, on Radio-Canada in Thursday prime-time, will be picked up via ‘simultrans’ by CBC News Network and CTV News Channel, and streamed on
"In effect, it’s a consortium debate with Radio-Canada playing the lead role. So it will be professionally produced and run by journalists who understand television — a marked contrast to last week’s Globe and Mail debate on the economy, an unmitigated disaster in terms of both production values and moderating.
"The Rad-Can debate will be followed next Monday by the Munk Debate on foreign policy. It’ll play out before a live audience in a sold-out, 3,000-seat Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto, with Rudyard Griffiths in his usual role as moderator. Griffiths is a polished television performer, and Peter Munk’s organization knows how to run a major-league event."
