Public Record - The Travers Debates – Inaugural Event

This event is split into two debates, the first being whether Twitter will be the death of journalism and second on whether the future of the United States is brighter than that of Canada. This inaugural event honours the late journalist James Travers and is a fundraiser for the newly-minted R. James Travers Foreign Corresponding Fellowship. (October 16, 2012)

The first debate features Chantal Hébert (Toronto Star and Le Devoir columnist) and Nathan Cullen (NDP House leader) arguing for the motion and Kady O'Malley (CBC News) and Bob Rae (Liberal interim leader) arguing against. The second debate features Dan Gardner (Ottawa Citizen columnist) arguing for the motion and Allan Gregg (pundit and political advisor) arguing against the motion.
