Public Record - 2013 Travers Debates


This annual event honours the late journalist James Travers and is a fundraiser for the R. James Travers Foreign Corresponding Fellowship.

This event is split into two debates. First, should journalists be banned from entering politics and vice versa, and second, whether Canada is a democracy in name only.

The first debate features Hélène Buzzetti (Le Devoir) and Megan Leslie (NDP MP, Halifax, N.S.) arguing for the motion and Althia Raj (Huffington Post Canada) and Dominic LeBlanc (Liberal MP, Beauséjour, N.B.) arguing against.

The second debate features Andrew Coyne ( Postmedia News) arguing for the motion and Peter Milliken (former Speaker of the House of Commons) arguing against. (October 22, 2013)
