Trudeau Can't Hold Up to a Debate, eh?
This video is absolutely brilliant. Yeah, I know she isn't exactly the seasoned debater like Harper or Mulcair, but I definitely liked how he laid things out and took control when it became clear this woman wasn't listening.
This woman (I keep forgetting her name, sorry) also apparently has ties to Vic Toews, though that doesn't really mean anything one way or the other considering that he is retired now. But suffice to say, she was sufficiently owned by Trudeau. I'm sure some Blogging Tories are going to nanner about how he was "talking down" to her - I see it as him taking control of an argument because its clear if he didn't, this woman wouldn't have gotten a scintilla of what he was talking about through to her brain (not sure she did even in the end, mind you). That is what you need to do in order to be an effective debater - get your opponents away from arguments that just go round in circles and hammer home your points effectively.
