Upcoming CBC News Oxford-style debate CBC Asks: Is Politics Broken?

Join us for a special CBC Newslive event on Wednesday, March 25 at 7 p.m. in the CBC Atrium that will debate provocative ideas and help set the tone for this crucial year in Canadian politics. It's one of the many ways that CBC News is engaging Canadians in conversations about politics and democracy leading up to the 2015 federal election. 

On stage, two teams of three debaters will argue a motion moderated by CBC News’s chief correspondent, Peter Mansbridge:

The Motion: The political process is no longer the most effective way to enact real change.

Debaters include:

Sheila Copps is a former Liberal MP and author 
Andrew Coyne is Editorials & Comment Editor of the National Post, and a columnist for Postmedia News
Alison Loat is an author, university instructor, and co-founder of Samara
Dave Meslin is a writer, community organiser and trainer
Aisha Moodie-Mills is an American progressive strategist, policy analyst, and social entrepreneur
Monte Solberg is a former P.C. MP and is currently a columnist and advisor

Steve Patterson, host of CBC Radio’s The Debaters, will MC the evening.

You get to vote to see which side wins.

The debate will be live streamed across the country at CBCNews.ca, and Canadians can engage in conversation using #CBCAsks.

Make your vote count and join us for this lively night of political engagement, including a post-debate reception in the CBC Atrium.Cash bar is available.
