The Munk leaders' debate on foreign policy scheduled for Sept. 28 is likely to raise two questions.

The debate English Canada needs, but probably won't get

Journalists and pundits had speculated that last night's first French-language leaders debate would be a Tom Mulcair pile on.

It wasn't.

The five leaders took to the stage at CBC/Radio-Canada in Montreal, each with their varying proficiencies of the French language, and tried to convince French-speakers (read: Québecers) that their party deserved our votes.

Not Rex: What Harper's 'old-stock Canadians' comment really means

Like this article? rabble is reader-supported journalism. Chip in to keep stories like these coming.

During the Globe debate, Prime Minister Stephen Harper made a reference to "old-stock Canadians" which quickly sent Twitter into a frenzy.

The day after, Harper was quick to clarify, and backpedal, on his comment saying he meant Canadians who have been here more than one generation. Hmm, Humberto "Not Rex" DaSilva is not buying it.
