Public Record - 2014 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, "So, who wants to be a Senator? Be it resolved that: Nominees to the Red Chamber be selected by means of a TV reality show, with winners chosen by the public, voting in real time via Twitter." The first debate features Elizabeth May (Green Leader) and Don Martin (CTV News) arguing for the motion and Lisa Raitt (Minister of Transport) and Tom Clark (Global News) arguing against.

The second debate, "Be it resolved that Canada has lost its way in the world," features Andrew Cohen (journalist, author and professor) arguing for the motion and Paul Wells (Senior Columnist for Maclean's Magazine) arguing against. (October 21, 2014)
