BC Liberal leadership debates should be more exciting, Falcon says Add to ...

Kevin Falcon is calling for more exciting debates among contenders to become B.C.'s next Liberal premier.

That means no advanced word of questions and more opportunities for the six candidates to go at each other, the former health minister said in a statement Saturday.

"I want to see how each of us handles the odd curve ball," he said.

Mr. Falcon said he is hoping for a format change by the next key debate which is on Feb. 12 at a convention to decide on the voting system the party members will use to pick a successor to Premier Gordon Campbell on Feb. 26.

"I hope we can juice it up on Feb. 12," he said.

"If I was sitting in the audience during those first debates, I'd think all of the candidates were pretty much the same," he said.

The candidates held debates in Kamloops and Prince George this week.
