Election 2015

The Globe and Mail, in partnership with Google Canada and CPAC (Cable Public Affairs Channel), presents:

Our Economy. Our Future. The Globe and Mail Leaders' Debate 2015

The economy is the most critical ballot-box issue facing Canadian voters in the upcoming federal election. As the country's leading source of business news and commentary, The Globe and Mail will probe the economic platforms of the three official parties, assessing their plans on everything from energy and housing to taxation and jobs.

Join The Globe and Mail on Thursday, September 17, as it hosts Conservative Party Leader Stephen Harper, NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair and Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau.

The Globe and Mail's editor-in-chief, David Walmsley (@WalmsleyGlobe), will moderate the debate. Political reporter Jane Taber (@JaneTaber1) will lead a panel before and after the debate with analysis from our team of political and business journalists, who will also offer regional perspectives, such as exploring the implications of slumping oil prices in Alberta and the plight of manufacturing in central Canada.
