Listen to our highlights recap as we take our listeners through the big televised Leaders Debate. We also have our own weekly Round Table discussion with candidates, our Second Ever Election Quiz and the fallout from the Guergis affair.
Lots of party platform promises and what they'll cost taxpayers: we had Rodolphe Husny for the Conservatives, Marlene Jennings for the Liberals, Thierry St-Cyr for the Bloc Québecois and Thomas Mulcair of the NDP in for our lively weekly Candidates Round Table.
